AIMS AND SCOPE
Technoetics is a convergent field of practice that seeks to explore consciousness and connectivity through digital, telematic, chemical or spiritual means, embracing both interactive and psychoactive technologies, and the creative use of moistmedia. Speculative research is a vehicle for projects that may in some cases be seen as unorthodox or out-of-the-box by more orthodox research communities, although always backed by significant depth and breadth of inquiry. This peer-reviewed journal presents the cutting edge of ideas, projects and practices arising from the emergent field of art, science, technology and consciousness research. It documents accounts of transdisciplinary inquiry, informed speculation, collaboration, and innovation that can be seen as technoetic, telematic, syncretic or cybernetic in approach. It is interested in the design, theory and production of new systems and structures for life in the 21st century, while inviting a re-evaluation of older worldviews, esoteric knowledge and arcane cultural practices. Second Life, the promise of nanotechnology, the ecology of variable reality environments, moistmedia methodologies, and the effect generally of a post-biological culture on art, human values, and identity, are issues central to the journal’s concerns.
