After nearly fifty years of paradigm shifts, the socialised power of science is transformed and has constructed a neoliberal view of science-as-art, management cum measurement. Modifying the norms of productivity to include those of creativity, neoliberal capitalism has an increasing tendency to quantify every aspect of life (including the arts) and to put the results into numbers. Gathering various instances of measurement in the arts, in Re-framing “Measuring the World,” Dr Miya Yoshida reconsiders the hype of social engineering and the wide adoption of algorithm through conceptual and post-conceptual practices. Contemplating the equation of art and life as well as “statactivism” (i.e. the mobilization of statistics), Dr Yoshida will draw lines of connections between imagination, affect, and current transformations in technologies of quantification.
