We live in an age in which political and cultural events happen with increasing speed; an overwhelming wave of stuff exacerbated in presence, impact and scale by complex networked technologies.

In our book, Supra Systems, designers, artists, academics, and curators respond to this theme of the presence and politics of networked technologies and systems through a series of essays, interviews, fragments, and visual pieces.

This book explores how we experience and articulate this intense space in which everything is happening – so much! – and the systems which underpin and permit it.

Authors include: David Benque, Paul Bailey, Luisa Charles, John Fass, Wesley Goatley, Sara Hendren, Natalie Kane, Joel Karamath, Shannon Mattern, Alistair McClymont, Tobias Revell, Michael Sedbon, Oliver Smith, Georgina Voss, Molly Wright Steenson, and Ewa Winiarczyk.

Editor: Georgina Voss

Supra Systems Studio (SSS) interrogates and materialises the politics of networked technologies through design practice, projects and teaching. SSS is hosted by the Design School, London College of Communication, UAL.
