Hypervolition Study

Hypervolition Study

In June 2020, Jevi coined the term hypervolition and defined the Jevinian Orders and Phases. These ideas are shared through a series of works, experiences and texts as the theory is developed.



My research is disseminated through both art and text. Text outputs include journal articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, essays, monographs, and theses.

Will unlock Aug 2022


For select portions of the research, art and experiences are used to convey the ideas in the chapter. One experiences the ideas as opposed to reading them. These are “art chapters” that replace pages of text. This is an ongoing series of explorations.


a series of ongoing code-poetry works written between Summer 2021 and Winter 2022. It considers the imagined sentience of artificial intelligence, and speculates on the consequences of its self-awareness, within the context of hypervolition. The entire collection of poems will be released in 2022.

My.o.T (2021)

a hyperfilm on our relationship with I.o.T. (Internet of Things) devices. This collaborative work is the result of a study of how we (myself included) view our present and future interactions with IoT devices in both negative and positive lights.

In Plain Sight (2020)

a short film addressing the concepts of reality, consumption, and beauty. It explores the question of what is real, and the consumption of what isn’t. It draws on the concepts of hyperreal defined in Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulations.

1NT3R 4LIA (2021)

an immersive audio-visual webVR experience that attempts to place you in my shoes as I explored what was happening in the world around me, when developing the ideas that led to “hypervolition.” The phrase “inter alia” is Latin for “amongst other things.” The piece places you in an audio-visual landscape, where you experience the news headlines as they fly pass you. This work is the result of a STEEP+V exercise.

The Resistance (2020)

a speculative fiction short story in an immersive audio format. It tells the story of a highly governed future society, and the struggle against it. This work uses speculative fiction writing, world building, and immersive SFX to bring the reader into a world set 50 years into the future, featuring the ideas of hypervolition. It also hints at the positive advancements that have occurred as a result of the type of governance within this society.

Hypervolition is the inability of consciousness to differentiate our real desires and choices, from algorithmically-deduced and imposed desires and choices. 



This ongoing biennial essay film series is a distilled version of select ideas within my research available for public consumption. The series began with Part One in Summer 2021 with select private screenings, and then scheduled to be publicly released in parts in autumn. This project will continue throughout the lifetime of this study.
