About Hyperrhiz

Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures provides a forum for experimental new media projects (both critical and creative) located outside or across current disciplinary boundaries.

New thinking need not follow established patterns. We at Hyperrhiz oppose the idea that knowledge must grow in a tree structure from previously accepted ideas. Instead, we are interested in the creative potential of thinking as a nodal process. As our name suggests, works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed but not required.

We value works that are nomadic in nature: place-less but not lost. Like the nomad, we encourage migrations into new conceptual territories resulting from unpredictable juxtapositions: of the material, the virtual, the oral, the visual, the textual, the tactile. These interleavings of words and practices, expressed as electronic meditations, are the literature of the Deleuzian technological nomad.
