Johnny Golding is a philosopher-poet. As Professor of Philosophy & Fine Art and Director of Radical Matter Proto-Centre at Royal College of Art, Golding's research concerns the future of knowledge systems. Most recently developed in her landmark co-authored book, Data Loam: Sometimes Hard, Usually Soft with Reinhart and Paganelli (DeGruyter), she re-stages artificial and distributed intelligence as 'radical matter': an inhabited, art-led encounter with the wild sciences (entanglement, diffraction, non-locality, undecidability, quantum dimensionalities and the logics of sense). Invited texts and poetic-philosophic installations include the Venice Biennale, Bogotá, Venice and Berlin. Onto-epistemological forays on AI, hive time, bodies; include: 'Entanglement: Just Gaming (2020), 4hrs, 30', 'The Photograph of Thought' (2019); 'Anatomy Lesson (an Open Letter, in friendship, to Sigmund Freud);' 'Friendship,' (2018), Lessons in Physics (2016); 'Fractal Philosophy: Attunement as the Task of Art.'  Books/ journals include: The Eight Technologies of Otherness; Zetesis: Research Generated by Curiosity.
