First Five with Jussi Parikka


Jussi Parikka is a London based Finnish media theorist. He works at Winchester School of Art as Reader in Media & Design. Parikka writes on media from a historical, but slightly twisted perspective: his books include work on computer viruses (Digital Contagions, 2007), insects (Insect Media, 2010) and on media archaeological methods (What is Media Archaeology 2012, and the with Erkki Huhtamo co-edited Media Archaeology, 2011). In addition, he co-edited with Tony Sampson a book on "spam, porn and other anomalous objects of digital culture" (The Spam Book, 2009).
