    Architect and writer Keller Easterling’s work offers rigorous new models for thinking about form, challenging assumptions about agency and power, and understanding how spaces and objects come to appear as they do. In conjunction with Jean-Luc Moulène: More or Less Bone, Easterling presents recent thinking that reorients conventional understandings of medium, form, and information systems.

    Keller Easterling’s most recent book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014), examines global infrastructure as a medium of polity. A recently published e-book essay titled Medium Design (Strelka Press, 2018) previews a forthcoming book of the same title. Easterling is a 2019 United States Artist Fellow in Architecture and Design. Her MANY project, an online platform facilitating migration through an exchange of needs, was exhibited at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. Easterling has exhibited at the Henry Art Gallery, the Istanbul Design Biennale, Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Rotterdam Biennial, the Queens Museum, and the Architectural League, among other institutions. She is a professor at the Yale School of Architecture.
