Aktuel forskning

In my current research, I examine big data environments through cultural theories of the archive and how big data are translated into regimes of vision. I focus in particular on data visualizations of contemporary warfare, from drone feeds to real time images and interactive mapping, but I am also interested in how contemporary artistic image practices recast and reenvision the technological make-up of contemporary warfare.
