With this Renewable Futures volume, we begin a new series of Acoustic Space, that will focus on exploring the transformative potential of art in the post-media age. Our book presents the research and practices that aim to invent new avenues for more sustainable and imaginative future developments. The papers from the 1st Renewable Futures Conference selected in this volume are aimed at shaping new contact zones between traditionally separated domains – art and science, academic research and independent creative practices.

This Open Fields volume presents artistic research that is located in the contested territory between academic knowledge production and independent creative practices. The book presents the interwoven histories of art and science in the digital age, by investigating the changing role of art in the network society. In previous volumes, we opened multiple conversations about how art can not only criticize and thereby provide a mirror for society, but how it can also more directly intervene in material and social structures. We are now continuing this discussion by asking: How can art and other creative practices meaningfully contribute to the environmental, technological and scientific challenges of our time?

Malraux’s imaginary museum has become a reality of our digital age. Everyday, a massive amount of different new visual, textual, and transactional data is added to this vast archive. How do we decide what bits of contemporary digital culture to preserve, study and curate given that its universe is constantly expanding?
