This panel discussion with co-authors Kaya Barry and Jondi Keane will discuss the book’s investigation of how measurement grounds our ability to identify and value relationships in the world, proposing creative and collective alternatives to anthropocentric measures. Creative Measures of the Anthropocene: Art, Mobilities, and Participatory Geographies is published by Palgave Macmillian.

Patrick Pound is a Melbourne artist and academic. Claiming the collection as a medium, Pound collects photographs and other things as if on a dare. Thinking through those collections, he puts to the test how museums of things might be found and made to hold ideas differently.

Jondi Keane is an arts practitioner, critical thinker and Associate Professor at Deakin University. Over three decades he has exhibited, performed and published in the USA, UK, Europe and Australia.
