Book Release and Panel Discussion

ENTR’ACTE: Performing Publics, Pervasive Media, and Architecture

  • with editor Jordan Geiger (University at Buffalo, School of Architecture and Planning)
  • and contributing authors Jonathan Massey (Dean, California College of the Arts, Architecture), Brett Snyder (UC Davis, Department of Design)
  • and participants Javier Arbona (UC Davis, Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow-American Studies Program), Sheryl-Ann Simpson (UC Davis, Department of Landscape Architecture and Human Ecology).

The “entr’acte” denotes the specific construction of both time and space between parts of a stage performance. This collection employs the entr’acte as a model for conceptualizing emerging formations of publics and of public space, in particular with the rapidly evolving proliferation of communications technologies that today result in new forms and durations of the public: as spaces, as socialities, and as discourses. Formed without the vast material intervention and deployment of capital of public space past, these defy traditional limits of design and construction.
