Published following the seminar series Frequencies: Investigations into Culture, History and Technology held at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London between November 1996 and March 1997.
'Frequencies: Investigations into Culture, History and Technology is the third book in the inIVA Annotations series. In this collection of texts delivered at three one-day seminars of the same title, chaired by Professor Lola Young, artists, designers and critics explore how technology, in all its manifestations, is transforming our lives at the end of the twentieth century. These critical debates analyse the economic, political and global forces that continually inform art practice in both Western and non-Western contexts. Contributors include Dunne + Raby, Susan Hiller, Takahiko Iimura, Anne-mie Van Kerckhoven, Gustav Metzger, Olu Oguibe, Denise Robinson, Marco Susani, Francoise Verges and Theodore Zeldin.' - excerpt from the back cover
