Peace videography: visual dissonance as a social practice in everyday life

Tieteellinen tutkimus / siihen pohjautuva työ | Kolmivuotinen

Based on a non-stop flow of digital data and cooperation between researchers and “antisocial neighbors,” our project will mash up dissonant conversations and restless public encounters into an imaginary peace videography. The project aims to create peace imaginaries in social circumstances characterized by the absence of peace and expectations of peaceful adjustment to expand the range of possible human activity. Employing new visual recording technologies, the project will produce new knowledge on the operation of visual images in the context of everyday life, peace and conflict in the digitized Finland of the 21st century. We will further develop our earlier work by analyzing visual media other than photography, especially video art; focusing on communicative practice and resulting affects rather than product; rethinking earlier work in light of digitization; and equalizing the loudest voices on the top with the critical cries from the margins. We will achieve this through a series of mash up workshops where the team’s research output and analytical expertise is tapped for enhancing peaceful communication.
