A forum on art, technology and global society.
The Digital Subconscious is a critical forum that seeks to ask key questions about the relationship between art, technology and philosophy. How has the soft architecture of the digital and virtual sphere affected the manner in which we choose to engage with the world? How have our formal relationships to art, music, and cinema changed over the last decade?
11 October 2013, 11am - 6pm
The White Building
Unit 7, Queens Yard
White Post Lane, Hackney Wick
Comprising a series of talks and provocations from writers, psychologists, curators and artists, this event will consider how social interplay on the web and across the digital sphere affects ethical, political and legal concerns. At the same time, this forum also seeks to consider wider questions about how our memories are constructed, produced, and recalled, in an age, where nothing is ever lost.
Speakers include: Björn T Atterstam (Boomtags, Expert in Positive Psychology), Tamara Barnett-Herrin (Singer/Songwriter), Dr Stefana Broadbent (Cognitive Scientist, UCL), Fabienne Hess (Artist),Nils Jean (PhD Candidate, Royal College of Art, London), Dr Bingchun Meng (Lecturer Media and Communications, LSE).
During the event, visitors are encouraged to bring their personal laptops to participate in a project devised by artist Fabienne Hess. Further info will be released on our blog, Think Tank.
Programme curated and convened by Omar Kholeif with Fabienne Hess and additional support from Alexandra Sutcliffe.
Full schedule will be announced soon.
This event will be followed by an evening of GLT.ICH.
