In November 2015, the Aotearoa Digital Arts Network (ADA) brought together eight artists and writers in post-quake Otautahi Christchurch, for a ‘book sprint’, the collaborative writing of a book over the course of five days. The result, A Transitional Imaginary, juxtaposes and interweaves its authors’ perspectives on the effects of the devastating series of earthquakes that began in 2010. Guided by the notion of ‘the digital’ in its broadest sense, this book offers a multiple view of the transitional city, attuned to the technologies, networks and virtualities that have always ordered our world.
