PhD research topic:

Aesthetics of technological arts through 'Capitalism and Schizophrenia" vol. I & II of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari.

 

Synopsis:

The title of my doctoral thesis is Aesthetics of new technological Arts through "Capitalism and Schizophrenia" I & II of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. This work consists of two books, the Anti-Oedipus (1972) and Mille Plateaux (1980). Deleuze and Guattari invent and discuss notions and their relations to various fields, as well as the very nature of these relations. Through field research, participant observation and literature study I attempt to clarify the terms of Deleuze and Guattari and their place in the field of Aesthetics. Furthermore, I investigate the need of contemporary artists to use Deleuze and Guattari's notions by including them in their practice. Finally, I dissect contemporary art forms, as well as the theoretical influence of postmodern philosophy, both of Deleuze and Guattari and the wider literature production. My research fields are: walking sound installations with mobile phones, internet/ web art, overidentification and subversion art, hacking art, bioart, interactive installations, dislocation as art, virtual reality, etc ..
