Architect and writer Keller Easterling’s work offers rigorous new models for thinking about form, challenging assumptions about agency and power, and understanding how spaces and objects come to appear as they do. In conjunction with Jean-Luc Moulène: More or Less Bone, Easterling presents recent thinking that reorients conventional understandings of medium, form, and information systems.

        Keller Easterling’s most recent book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014), examines global infrastructure as a medium of polity. A recently published e-book essay titled Medium Design (Strelka Press, 2018) previews a forthcoming book of the same title. Easterling is a 2019 United States Artist Fellow in Architecture and Design. Her MANY project, an online platform facilitating migration through an exchange of needs, was exhibited at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. Easterling has exhibited at the Henry Art Gallery, the Istanbul Design Biennale, Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Rotterdam Biennial, the Queens Museum, and the Architectural League, among other institutions. She is a professor at the Yale School of Architecture.

 

Jean-Luc Moulène: More or Less Bone

Apr 29–Jul 29, 2019

 

Collaborating closely with engineers with advanced expertise in formal optimization, Moulène produces an object that is nothing but its own condition of existence: a form defined as efficient for a given set of material conditions and environmental variables. More or Less Bone continues Moulène’s recent investigations into the intersections of advanced technology and contemporary material culture.
