Moderated by Romi Ron Morrison

Volumetric technologies are increasingly sought after commodities in a wide range of contexts from entertainment to city planning to military surveillance. Rendering a reality of their own, instead of the one's captured, volumetric technologies reflect a nested regime of representations, truths, and ideologies, producing an affective computational sublime. Hidden inside glossy renders and visual effects, these representations proliferate explicit politics, taking up space, volume and depth, minimising difference and the modes of representation.

In this conversation, Femke Snelting, Georgina Voss, Irene Fubara-Manuel, and Jara Rocha, with moderator Romi Ron Morrison, discuss the problems and promises of volumetric technologies and their seamless movement between entertainment, shopping, ikea catalogues, smart borders, and wildlife preservation. Unpacking the affects of the computational sublime, their conversation aims to bring bodies and data points and spaces back into relation with each other.
