Presentation Title:

  • Creating 3D Animated Worlds to Explore Multi-species Conflict and Interdependence

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Meredith Drum will discuss her recent 3D digital animations, and her choice to employ the trope of the chimera and images of female power from gaming and cinema to explore feminist discourse around gender, sexuality, mutuality and violence, all within a larger consideration of multi-species conflict and interdependence in the capitalocene. Drum’s talk will be founded, in part, on her understanding of Donna Haraway’s tentacular thinking, and the motivation she takes from Haraway’s insistence that: “The unfinished Chthulucene must collect up the trash of the Anthropocene, the exterminism of the Capitalocene, and chipping and shredding and layering like a mad gardener, make a much hotter compost pile for still possible pasts, presents, and futures”.
