Contributing to artistic practice and media design studies, this paper discusses creative arts pedagogy at a significant moment of profound concentration and the impact of emergent technologies on much of contemporary culture. The provenance of such ubiquitous networks is language and code, a visceral integral part of our daily lives. By deploying minimal computing frameworks as a potent mode of critical inquiry, the ever-widening gap and misalignment of expectations around critical engagement in university can be analysed. These palpable practices respond to the bodies who inhabit and traverse these spaces. Reflecting on some of the propositions raised in the ACUADS 2021 New Networks Conference, the paper presents an examination of how corporealities assemble through computational poetics to build liveable and sustainable techno-lifeworlds. It advances the propositions of Investigative Aesthetics, as defined by Fuller & Weizman (2021). Examining pedagogical case studies and participant observational analysis demonstrates ways to restore diverse experiential learning spaces by nurturing sociability and kinship. The findings reveal that emerging technological systems are a bio-social-cultural construct. The paper considers how networked infrastructure has contributed to the destruction and creation of nascent ecologies to stimulate diverse pedagogical innovations related to artistic production and codesign practice as cultural spaces containing actants perceived as a new species that exists with/in us.
