In what domains do we find cybernetic logics being applied or contested? Cybernetic questions are also political questions. Originally denoting control of technical systems, the application of cybernetic principles specifically to social theory implies that networks and information are politicized as means of social control—ways to stabilize and steer society.
Contemporary deployments of these logics of control are found in behavioral science and strategic design, to name a few. This disquiet, already professed in the later writings of cybernetic forefather Norbert Wiener, appears more recently in relation to notions such as Michel Foucault's biopower, Gilles Deleuze's societies of control, and N. Katherine Hayles' antihuman posthumanism.
Is cybernetic control of humanity being achieved? Are machines, networks, and information necessarily enemies in fights for just, equitable, and sustainable futures?
Can we envision or enact new intelligences, new networks, or new post humanities? Jonathan Bratt Arizona State University. Organizing Committee. Angela Sakrison Arizona State University. Zachary Thomas Arizona State University. Niklas Wild-Damiris is a theoretical physicist turned economic theorist. He also was a visiting scholar and occasional lecturer at Stanford University for many years.
Recently, he left the Bay Area to return to the East Coast where he went to school, and can be closer to Europe where there is growing interest in his work re-envisioning monetary and financialized economies with the help of insights from quantum field theory. He directs the Synthesis Center for responsive environments and improvisation with colleagues in AME and affiliate research centers.
From to , he directed the Topological Media Lab TML , an atelier-laboratory for the study of gesture and materiality from computational and phenomenological perspectives. From to , he was a visiting scholar and adjunct professor at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California, under the supervision of Everett M. His research interests concern the contemporary cyberculture, from the production and uses of information and communication technologies to molecular biology, or, in other words, everything that concerns the fictions of science and the science fictions of code.

His research focuses on the affective-phenomenological domains of media, the role of information processing technologies in biomedical research, and theories of novelty in the life sciences. His most recent work is on the cellular spaces of transformation in evolutionary and developmental biology research and the cultural spaces of transmutation in popular culture and the arts. Stacey works at the intersections of feminist theory and technoscience, design research, and critical pedagogy. Stacey worked in the fashion industry for twenty years, and enlists this expertise to engage new forms of speculative and critical design research.
Her current research investigates how methods in the physical sciences provide a new foothold for thinking about the materiality of knowledge production in feminine writing practices.
Nocek has published numerous essays on architecture and design, artificial life, process philosophy especially Whitehead and Deleuze , and biotechnology. She is interested in the convergence of technology and biology, new biotechnologies and emergent biomedia amateur synthetic biology, hobbyist genetic engineering, Do-It-Yourself biohacking.
Her doctoral dissertation methodology draws upon the work of Gilbert Simondon on communication, cybernetics, individuation and modes of existence. She complemented her theoretical framework by drawing from pragmatics, STS, media theories, and philosophies of modes and modality in ontology, rhetoric and logic.
