Ondřej Trhoň | Virtual (?) Futures, Planetary Aims


During his residency, Trhoň was working on an essay draft exploring the ways planetary becoming is addressed through new simulation technologies and video games. Besides that he wrote a shorter opinion piece for ETC (to be published in the third issue of the magazine) and conducted also a conversation with Slovak artist András Cséfalvay and Berlin-based artist Simon Speiser, which will be published in the form of a podcast at Šum journal for art and theory-fiction platform.

ISkRA writer-in-residence is organized within the More-Than-Planet project. It accompanies the ARIA summer school and acts as the counterpart to ISkRA AiR. The residency hosts authors who work with new media theory and theory-fiction. The residency encourages writing as a practice of articulating descriptions of the world yet to come and as a tool for proposing new planetary imaginaries that might inform actual political, economic, technological, and ecological interventions.
