SloMoCo Special Topics

In addition to the MOCO Topics, here are possible (more specific) special topics vectors generated by SloMoCommittee which may spark a proposal direction in the SloMoCo context.

  • lock-down, data and attention economies
  • fieldwork in movement and computing
  • crowds and power, surveillance and sousveillance
  • queering movement and computation
  • movement justice and (algorithmic) resistance (to algorithms)
  • temporality, time-based media
  • movement & immediation, the “problem” of documenting/representing performance
  • archiving, death, and refusing to die; philosophical and computational zombies
  • algorithmic oppression and evasionary tactics
  • migration, travel bans, and smart walls
  • racialized movement, computational racialization
  • calibrating speeds/intensities between the body, chair, screen,
  • accessibility, neurodiversity, disability
  • movement and planned obsolescence, e-waste, and discard studies
  • movement, automation, and the future of work
  • smart (and dumb?) cities, urban morphology and access, institutional bifurcation of movement
  • chance operations and choreographing randomness or indeterminacy
  • movement, digital activism, swarms, agitprop
