‘Thinking the Unthinkable’ – Sensing In/Security

How do sensing practices generate securities and insecurities? How do sensors affect security practices, surveillance, and infrastructures? The new edited collection ‘Sensing In / Security’ by Nina Klimburg-Witjes, Nikolaus Poechhacker and Geoffrey C. Bowker discusses new types of surveillance and the impact of (sensor) infrastructures/networks. In my contribution I address techno-imaginations, the rhetorics of unpredictable futures and the idea of ‘wild cards’ which is not only rampant today but already a big ‘player’ on Cold War politics.
