Remediating the Infected Body: Writing the Viral Self in Melinda Rackham's carrier

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Melinda Rackham's web-based multimedia installation carrier invites its audience to consider the intersections of virus and human, through an investigation of the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and its impact upon conceptions of the self in the posthuman digital era. Rackham uses her experience with HCV to posit the infected as more-than-human, and in doing so she prompts new ways of thinking about the personal story in a hypertextual framework.
