Celia Lury and Chris Salter will address a datalogical turn that revolutionizes the capacities of programming, calculation, and computation. The talk will focus on bodily matter and bodily experience, where the bodily is understood to be coagulated with data spheres in which population data, organizational surveillance, and all matter of digital traces are meshed. It will ask, what inventive methods must we create to interactively engage the dynamics of the data sphere, its intensities, speeds, affects?
