MachineMachine is the website and archive of Daniel Rourke.

I am a writer/artist and academic.

My work exploits speculative and science fiction in search of a radical ‘outside’ to the human(ities), including extensive research on the intersection between digital materiality, the arts, and posthumanism.

In March 2015 artist & activist Morehshin Allahyari and I released The 3D Additivist Manifesto: a call to push technologies beyond their breaking point, into the realm of the provocative, and the weird. The project was the 2016 recipient of the prestigious Vilém Flusser Residency for Artistic Research, Berlin, where we will work on producing the ‘final’ 3D Additivist Cookbook for publication in late 2016. See here for a list of related events.

The /stream section of this site archives what I read, write, watch, think, research, and do as part of an ongoing experiment with aggregation and meaning. You can think of it as an interactive notebook and portfolio.
