"Zombie Media", as defined by Jussi Parikka:

Zombie media addresses the living deads of media culture. As such, it is clearly related to the earlier calls to investigate “dead media” by Bruce Sterling and others: to map the forgotten, out-of-use, obsolete and declared dysfunctional technologies in order to understand better the nature of media cultural development […] We would want to add that in addition to developing discursive methodologies, weneed to develop methodologies that are theoretically rich as well as practice-oriented –where ontologies of technical media meet up with innovative ideas concerning designin an ecological context.As such, the other part of the zombie media call is the work of reappropriationthrough circuit bending and hardware hacking methodologies – to extend the mediaarchaeological as well as ecosophic interest into design issues.
