The Sorcerer’s Apparatus is Timothy Erik Ström’s website. He is an independent writer who lives on unceded Wurundjeri land in Melbourne, Australia. He uses political and philosophical approaches to research the overlapping realms of technology, ecology, colonialism and capitalism.
Tim is an editor at the radical publishing cooperative Arena and is the author of Globalization and Surveillance. He has been through various shades of precarious employment thorough the University of Melbourne, where he lectured the masters course ‘Digital Politics’; at RMIT University, where he taught ‘Global Political Economy’; and at Western Sydney University where he worked as a casual researcher involved with many projects.
With his partner, UB, and daughter Mirolima, Tim is part of an effort to retrofit a slice of suburbia into a vibrant community with lots of shared projects, food production via lush permaculture gardens and decommodified living arrangements.
He plays bass guitar and if there is any time left, he writes science fiction.
