Robert Willim

Researcher and teacher in European Ethnology. Also active as artist.

My research has primarily dealt with how imaginaries are entwined with digital cultures, materiality and experiences of place.

Some years ago I developed a research track about the concept Industrial Cool. This deals with the ways traditional industries are transformed in contact with ideas about a postindustrial society. I have continued this work through examinations of imaginaries of decay and vital materiality.

Mixes of art and cultural analysis is another of my interests. I work with a number of art projects that are juxtaposed with research questions. The artworks are used as "art probes" that might transmute concepts in my research.
