Gaston Gordillo on the ‘Oceanic Void’

Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 13.52.37

Anthropologist Gaston Gordillo has posted an intriguing essay on his Space and Politics blog about how we might think with an ‘Oceanic Void’. I don’t fully agree with his deployment of the ‘Void’ concept (see my comments, as well as those of Steve Mentz, and hopefully others who will join the discussion), but it’s a provocative discussion starter.

Although the academic in me intuitively focuses on the 5 percent that I don’t like, 95 percent of the essay is really, really good. I look forward to publication of the complete chapter.
