Sensorium Lunchtime Seminar Series (Winter 2022): John Ancheta
The Lunchtime Seminar Series is a weekly event which aims to foster interconnectivity between faculty, graduate students, visiting scholars and artists within the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design. This casual series will host a variety of scholarly presentations by both York and visiting researchers who want to interface with our community and share their work.
The sessions take place weekly on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Lectures will be virtual until it is safe to gather in-person, at which time it will be a hybrid format, with in-person sessions at Sensorium Loft Space (4th Floor CFA, Room M333) and a virtual stream for those who cannot attend in person.
Due to COVID-19, in-person capacity is limited. Please adhere to York’s COVID regulations, including completion of the YU Screen and wearing a mask.
John Ancheta (Media Artist, PhD in Visual Arts at York U.)
April 27, 2022
John Ancheta is a Wet’suwet’en territory-based musician and digital media artist. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Visual Arts at York University and his areas of research include cybernetic histories and incomputational aesthetics. Facilitating what he deems “parafactual field recordings,” John’s largely sound-based studio practice operates as a thinking though of social-technical trajectories, a largely speculative and imaginative process whereby he fictionalizes and estranges his engagements with various media theories in order to generate productive deviations from his initial lines of inquiry. The primary focus of his current project is on figuring the temporal complexities of distributed human-machinic ecologies.
