Paperweight Radio: The Ghosts of Visual & Material Culture

Screen shot 2013-04-08 at 16.31.35

On the 15th March I travelled down to London to take part in a radio interview on Resonance FM, the London-based Arts Radio Station to promote the new book. The programme was a pilot for a new regular show hosted by Juliette Kristensen to tie in with the excellent publication Paperweight, the newspaper of Visual and Material Culture. As it turned out, it was a really pleasurable experience!

Fot this pilot episode, the theme was ‘Ghosts’ (tying in with the second issue of the newpaper, in which I had an article titled ‘Ghost in the Machine’, describing what ‘vapourware’ is). In all there were four guests: myself talking about the ghostly computer products that are Vapourware, the parageographer James Thurgill on haunted places; the collector and curator Brad Feuerhelm on occult photography; and ninteenth century literature and culture scholar Clare Pettitt on the nineteenth century telegraphic imaginary.

A recording of the whole programme (1hr) is available through soundcloud – although the first section, in which I discuss Delete and  the concept of Vapourware, is 16 mins long. If you have a few minutes to spare, have a listen….
