We are very pleased to announce the launch of “Unspeakable Things” [“р╕кр╕┤р╣Ир╕Зр╕Чр╕╡р╣Ир╣Бр╕Хр╕░р╕Хр╣Йр╕нр╕Зр╣Др╕бр╣Ир╣Др╕Фр╣Й”] as a special issue of the online, media-friendly outlet Sensate: A Journal of Critical Media Practice.

In “Unspeakable Things,” we explore Thai politics through everyday objects – both Thai and foreign analysts are limited in what we can say directly, so we turn to objects as a strategy of dissident analysis. We began this project as the one-year anniversary of the April-May 2010 violent crackdown by Thai state forces on red shirt protestors passed. We are finishing as the second anniversary of the crackdown dawns with accountability still elusive. This series is also launched at a time when the number of people convicted of violations of Article 112 and the 2007 Computer Crimes Act is high and growing.

Each piece in this series combines different media forms to create a layered, interactive collage of words, images, video, and sound. At this time, the introduction and the first three pieces, with contributions by Craig Reynolds and Team, Ben Tausig and Peter Doolan, and Elizabeth Fitzgerald, have been published. The remaining six pieces will be released in several groups over the coming weeks. We invite you to spend time viewing, listening, and reading, and in so doing reflect on the Thai present and the resonances and effects of what can be spoken and what utterances remain forbidden.

You can view the introduction and the first three pieces here.
