See the world through the eyes of a search engine, if only for a millisecond; throw the workings of power into sharper relief by any media necessary; reveal access points to other worlds within our own
In the anthology Fiction as Method, a mixture of new and established names in the fields of contemporary art, media theory, philosophy and speculative fiction explore the diverse ways fiction manifests, and provide insights into subjects ranging from the hive mind of the art collective 0rphan Drift to the protocols of online self-presentation.
In each case, fiction is bound up with the production and modulation of desire, the enfolding of matter and meaning and the blending of practices that cast the existing world in a new light with those that participate in the creation of new openings of the possible.
