Book Project

My current book project uses three case studies with very different relationships toward materiality: 19th century glass marine models, the stories of the 1990s tactical media movement, and bioarts as currently practiced in a wet biological lab in Australia. These cases serve to show that art and science are not stable categories and demonstrate ways those categories are maintained. My completed book aims to be a catalyst for considering how new areas of knowledge are positioned to fit into the traditional categories of art and science. Considering these categories can help us understand the knowledge categories we have naturalized as different intellectual pursuits and offer a productive place for thinking about how STS tools can address bodies of knowledge beyond science and technology.
