I’m now back after a good trip to Oslo for the Technologies of Space: Verticality, Volume, Infrastructure symposium
I spoke on the topic of “Terrain’s Volume”, which was a version of a talk I’ve now given in Gießen, Durham, and London. It’s nearing a written form that I’m happy with. Unusually, this talk has been filmed in all the places I’ve delivered it, and I will share any links when I have them. I’ll also be giving a version of this talk in Maynooth later this month, but I’m hoping any talks after that on this theme will include new material.
Lisa Parks and Mark Dorrian were the other speakers at the Oslo event, neither of whom I’d met before, and I enjoyed our conversations. We also took part in a reading seminar the previous day, where we discussed works by Deleuze and Guattari, Foucault, Lefebvre… Parks, Dorrian and Elden. It was my first time in Norway, and I was grateful for the welcome and the hospitality from Liv Hausken, Susanne Østby Sather, Adam Sindre Johnson, and their colleagues.
