Erik Davis describes a world exploding with technologies, products, and material processes that challenge our conceptual categories with their apparent intelligence and animation. He will question whether we are witnessing the emergence of a new animism – a spiritual or mystical reading of nature, objects and machines. Erik Davis is a writer and lecturer based in San Francisco who has written extensively on technoculture, music, and spirituality. Every week he explores “cultures of consciousness” on his online podcast Expanding Mind.
Following his presentation Erik Davis will be joined in conversation by Mark Leckey.
