Erin Manning

holds a University Research Chair in Relational Art and Philosophy in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). She is also the director of the Sense Lab. In her art practice she works between painting, fabric and sculpture. Together with Brian Massumi she founded the journal INFLeXions and co-organizes a  series of events and activities dedicated to the collective exploration of new ways of bringing philosophical and artistic practices into mutually beneficial interaction. Her writing addresses the senses, philosophy and politics, articulating the relation between experience, thought and politics in a transdisciplinary framework moving between dance and new technology, the political and micropolitics of sensation, performance art, and the current convergence of cinema, animation and new media.
