Angela Piccini’s new publications in ‘media archaeology'
7 November 2016
Angela Piccini has been actively involved in the field of 'media archaeology' for a number of years. Media archaeology seeks to understand the moving image and its associated technological assemblages as materially discursive. That is, the moving image is not simply representational, aesthetic or ideological. Rather, it is a complex network of material relations across humans, non-humans and networks.
Over the past year, Piccini has edited a special edition of the Journal of Contemporary Archaeology on this subject (https://journals.equinoxpub.
com/index.php/JCA/issue/view/ 2120), with contributions from film, media and archaeology disciplines; has published an article on Media Archaeologies of the Olympic City in a special issue on Mega-Cities in the Canadian visual culture journal Public(http://www. publicjournal.ca/53-mega- event-cities/); and her chapter on The Cube: A Cinema Archaeology (written as a collective with Cube Microplex volunteers) in New Media Archaeologies (edited by Ben Roberts and Mark Goodall, Amsterdam University Press) will be published in January 2017.
