Sky M. J. Carranza’s conceptual work and research aims to pose questions and open up intersectional multilogical spaces by experimenting with physical and psychological parameters. Scenarios take the form of moving image installations or the application of semi-participative arenas designed for collective hangouts. Recurring topics include observing the interconnectivity of our embodied values, elusive sentiments of belonging, and an analysis of power relations through perspectives of individual and collective precarity.
Having recently collaborated with horizontal, pay-free, and autonomous learning/teaching spaces in Buenos Aires, the following questions have concretized: Which negotiations have the potential to create a political scenario of deep solidarity in the near-future, a time within which being “human” will most likely mean something different? What kind of tools are needed to capacitate informed decisions, agency, and a de-individualization of conflict in such collectively imagined future(s)?
Further key research concerns involve the intertwined consideration of morphing linguistics, dis/-information infrastructure, and emotional post-scarcity.
