Matthew Hockenberry is a media historian and technologist whose work focuses on media structures and materiality. He is working within infrastructural approaches at the intersection of telecommunication and paperwork studies to develop a media history of logistics. As a visiting scientist at the MIT Center for Civic Media he developed Sourcemap, a collaborative platform for mapping supply chains and sharing “where things come from,” and he writes on the state of global supply and the worldwide apparatus of production through the lens of its emblematic objects.
