The Artefact Lab is new space for research and exploration in the field of media studies in the Department of Communication at the UdeM. Privileging a reflection on media materialities across scales, time periods, cultures, and practices, the activities of the lab are located at the intersection of the following research axes: Media archaeology and history Technical and biological materials and matters of mediation Imaginaries, representations and cultural dimensions of the technical universe Practices and aesthetics at the crossroads of art and technology, including electronic, media and bio arts Digital infrastructures and emerging technologies Media spaces, environments and milieux Philosophy and epistemology of the arts, science and technology The Artefact Lab is organized and directed in collaboration with my colleagues Ghislain Thibault and Thierry Bardini. Starting in September, it will host monthly meetings of its members and graduate students, reading groups, invited speakers, and other special events. Website and launch activities coming in the Fall.
