Hyperrhiz: new media cultures
Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures provides a forum for experimental new media projects (both critical and creative) located outside or across current disciplinary boundaries.
New thinking need not follow established patterns. We at Hyperrhiz oppose the idea that knowledge must grow in a tree structure from previously accepted ideas. Instead, we are interested in the creative potential of thinking as a nodal process. As our name suggests, works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed but not required.
We value works that are nomadic in nature: place-less but not lost.
Like the nomad, we encourage migrations into new conceptual
territories resulting from unpredictable juxtapositions: of the
material, the virtual, the oral, the visual, the textual, the
tactile. These interleavings of words and practices, expressed as electronic
meditations, are the literature of the Deleuzian technological nomad. Hyperrhiz is published twice-yearly in conjunction with our parent journal Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge (rhizomes.net), and maintains a community weblog for news of interest to the new media/net art community. Visitors are encouraged to create a login and contribute (of course, abuse will not be tolerated..)
