Visual summary of Det oförklarligas medieekologier

LMI, together with Norrköping konstmuseum and Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter, held a symposium on media ecologies of the unexplained Thursdag September 14, 2017. Below you’ll find a visual summary of the afternoon.

Jesper Olsson introduced the program at Norrköping konstmuseum.


The intervention by Linda Hilfling Ritasdatter, Endless Endtime, continued during the whole symposium. Every time she found words from the talks that added up to 666 (according to the chosen values of a reader of the religious journal Endtime), she faxed the results to the journal in the US.

Varje gång en sådan betingelse upptäcktes, skapades ytterligare ett brev som sedan skickades direkt med fax till redaktören End Time journal.
