Lum is currently expanding on his ‘Dialectics and Aesthetics of Creating with the Digital - An Anthropology of Interface’ - a tempo-historic phenomenology – combination of multisided ethnographic research, digital ethnography, and interactive film project which investigates the lives of digital creators through a shared exploration of layers of belief systems, experiences and beliefs, to then analysing with them their current relationships with their formed philosophies, daily engagements and their creations.
