founder & organizer

This series of lectures and intimate performancs fostered disciplinary-boundary crossings around technological discourse. Each MALfunction paired an artist and researcher around a similar theme to investigate not only questions about contemporary and historical technologies but also the relationship of research to practice.

The series was sponsored by the Media Archaeology Lab and hosted at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.
