Repairing and Reconstructing our Digital Entanglement
The technological landscape has changed vastly since the utopian dreams of the early 1990s, human entanglement with technology is no longer an emerging process, but has rather become a steadily tightening knot. As digital artists can we not help but wonder: is it possible to construct a relationship of care and intimacy with technology? How can we apply this to a sustainable art practice in a network that seems to have epitomised capitalist principles? If we are to maintain and repair our digital environment it must be possible to develop a relation to technologies that is not defined by dominance - can this development be considered to be within feminist practice?
Furtherfield curator and artist Ruth Catlow, Meritxell Rosell and Lula Criado of CLOT magazine, and Rachel Falconer curator, head of Goldsmiths Digital Studios and lecturer in Computational Arts, will join us to discuss the social and ecological consequences of technology on our world through the lense of digital arts practice. The threads in the very fabric of our existence have become conductive - we must now find new ways of weaving.
