Jon K Shaw & Theo Reeves-Evison (Eds.)
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 Orphan Drift to the protocols of online self-presentation. The book invites reflection on how fictions proliferate, take on flesh, and are carried by a wide variety of mediums, including—but not limited to—the written word. Contributors include Justin Barton, Delphi Carstens, Mer Roberts, Tim Etchells, Matthew Fuller, David Garcia, Dora García, M. John Harrison, Simon O’Sullivan, Erica Scourti, and editors Jon K Shaw and Theo Reeves-Evison.
