Kirby Institute Seminar Series presents
PhD, Postdoc at the Department of Digital Design, IT University of Copenhagen
Kristian Møller studies the intersection of media technology and mostly, gay sexuality and culture. He explores hook-up app and drug cultures, mobilising concepts of affect, intimacy, materialism, infrastructures, and assemblage. He is based at the IT University of Copenhagen, and currently a visiting scholar in the Chemical Practices research group.
In this talk, I will present data from my ongoing participant observation among gay, bisexual, and men who have sex with men who are using a video conferencing platform to engage in sociability, mostly around smoking crystal meth. I will consider its practices, social hierarchies and digital as well as chemical modulations of erotic pleasure and temporality.
