Sites of protest and political contention are often shaped by ‘other media’. In her talk, Anna Feigenbaum look beyond taken-for-granted media devices and practices and returns to the foundational roots of Communication Theory’s 'the medium and the message'.
In addition to smartphones, Facebook pages, political posters and live-streaming laptops, communication involves all kinds of other technologies. Such "other media" objects include the fences, walls, and barricades, that become sites of and for communication. This 'other media' also includes 'container technologies' like shoeboxes or sound grenades, which function as storage devices, as well as re-crafted objects that become transformed through practices of disobedient design.
