A DICTIONARY OF DARK MATTERS / 2020





Over 10 weeks the students of Dark Matters: Critical Theory of Technology (taught by American Artist and TA Zainab Aliyu at the School for Poetic Computation) have been studying together digitally across states and countries. They have all made contributions to the culminating publication “A Dictionary of Dark Matters” containing an assemblage of poetry, prose, creative writing, personal histories and illustrations that redefine what a dictionary can be. The 562 page publication holds definitions of terms such as Transparency, Redaction, Racial Gaze, Abolition, Tax State, Causal Pleasure, etc. based on students personal experiences and (un)learnings from the course.
