Metatechnicity Research Convenors
A speculative designer and theorist. Why do we have a word for the stuff we call technology? When designers and theorists try to characterise our species, our cognition, our planet and our physics, is it more productive to understand technology and the human body as nodes in a single widely distributed and emergent bio-technic ‘soma’? Stephen Thompson. PhD. MA(RCA). BA(Hons). SFHEA. FRSA. Principal Lecturer, Academic Lead of Graduate Studies (Doctoral & Masters), Cardiff School of Art & Design : Cardiff Metropolitan University. OpenUp Music Trustee.
A media theorist in the broadest sense of the term concerned with how forms of media (whether image, text, telescope, air, fire, water, or rock) shape human and non-human lifeworlds over time. He explores the relational nature of bodies (as organisms) and their environments as can be made apparent through an archaeology of depictions and other visual and material artefacts over time. Martyn Woodward PhD. MA. BA(Hons). SFHEA. Senior Lecturer, Cardiff School of Art & Design : Cardiff Metropolitan University.
