How have networks influenced love—and how does love traverse networks? Shaka McGlotten has been exploring affective encounters, erotic desires, and queer forms of relating in social media for more than a decade. Looking into the movement of dreams, bodies, and discourses, they have been studying the intensities and intimacies that manifest the yearning for a life better lived. In their performative lecture at transmediale 2019, McGlotten tracks a networked experience of love. Their personal experiences will be interwoven with a theoretical engagement with network cultures through feminism and queer studies. Within this context, non-dual tantra is discussed as a technology that can foster innumerous threads among users: affects, moments of joy, and ways of living.
