The Expressive Power of Memes or Tracing Digital Artefacts in the Making

In this talk I will first look at memes as aesthetic objects »at the brink« that mediate individuation, following both Simondon and Bakhtin. I will then proceed to examine the genesis and power of memes as aesthetic phenomena modelled on a small number of Web platforms and exemplified in a few groups, most notably the Anonymous. The talk will also engage with meme self-research culture.
