Object-Oriented Ontology: on metaphors, technology and the ethereal
Philosophy researcher, translator, and critic Tomas Čiučelis lives and works in Dundee, Scotland. During the time he spent living in Vilnius and London, Čiučelis translated two books into Lithuanian (Lev Manovich’s Language of New Media; and Noam Chomsky’s Hegemony or Survival) whilst giving public talks and participating in contemporary art projects. Currently he is a columnist at EchoGoneWrong.com magazine and in his spare time Čiučelis is also a jazz guitar performer.
In his research Čiučelis uses the heritage of continental thinkers such as Heidegger and Derrida as well as developments in speculative realism to reflect on the problems of ‘outsideness’, namely: outside language, outside reason, outside human experience.
