Radically EFF'd - Through the Extraterrestrial Lens

On Demand

General admission: $12 | $9 (conc). For Festival Passes and concession information, click here.

This talk is paired with Extra-Terrestrial Ecologies (Retroflectors: the astronaut, the robot, the alien). Your ticket gains you access to both the film and the talk.

Panelists Ralo Mayer, Tyson Yunkaporta and PLUGINHuman deliver three mini lectures about how we might interpret ‘alien perspectives’ when thinking about ecology – and how the space-ecology complex reveals new perspectives on issues of the Anthropocene.

This event is supported by Brunswick Mechanics Institute.


Tyson Yunkaporta | Tyson Yunkaporta is an educator, Indigenous thinker, traditional wood carver, arts critic, researcher and poet. He is a member of the Apalech clan in far north Queensland with ties in the south, born-country is Melbourne and adoptive and community/cultural ties all over, from Western NSW to Perth. His award winning book Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World examines global systems from an Indigenous perspective.

Ralo Mayer | Ralo Mayer’s work delineates ecologies of contemporary history, exploring the relation of nature and society as a collapsing dichotomy. Objects like space shuttles, artificial ecosystems, the everyday life of post-Fordism, or digital cultures interweave into meshes of past futures and today’s Science Fiction.More often than not this breeds monsters of translation – cross-media ensembles of installation, film, text, or performance.

PluginHUMAN | PluginHUMAN is a multi-award-winning art duo led by Dr Betty Sargeant and Justin Dwyer. PluginHUMAN are at the progressive edge of their field, providing audiences with new cultural, environmental and scientific perspectives. Their artworks address the leading questions and concerns of our times.
