Writing and Unwriting (Media) Art History: Erkki Kurenniemi in 2048, edited by Joasia Krysia and Jussi Parikka, came out from MIT Press’ Leonardo series late last year. The book explores the work (and some of the life) of Erkki Kurenniemi, composer of electronic music, experimental filmmaker, computer animator, roboticist, inventor, futurologist and porn aficionado. There have been book launches in Montreal and London and, on March 4, it’ll be Helsinki and Kiasma. Wish I could make it myself.
