THE NEW NORMAL
Tony Yanick is a philosopher, media-theorist, computer engineer, multimedia-artist, and musician from the United States. He holds a Master of Science in Computer Engineering with a concentration on mobile robotics, natural language and machine learning, as well as an interdisciplinary Master of Arts in Philosophy and World Literature. He has spoken on philosophy, film, media, and technology internationally, and has his work shown in galleries in Cleveland, NYC, London, Prague, Shanghai, and Vienna. He is a founder of The New Centre for Research & Practice, a member of the experimental Non-Philosophy collective TICIG, and frequent collaborator under the collective AUDINT. Tony is developing an experimental methodology of science-fictional practices, expanding beyond its literary form (including speculative philosophy, “philo-fiction”, and design fiction), and investigating the generic capacities of temporal displacement/disturbance, anachronistic temporalities, and narrative framing as an abductive political-aesthetic strategy.
