Thinkings: How computers change the way we see

Southern Exposure will be hosting my three-part discussion series
called Thinkings: How computers change the way we see by altering the
way we think.

Tuesday, September 21, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Tuesday, October 19, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Tuesday, November 16, 7:00 – 9:00pm

Over the course of three evenings, participants will work through concepts that are crucial to understanding the computer’s significance: the automation of variation, the automation of the sublime, and the automation of the image itself. The book produced for the series is meant to focus attention on these visual aspects of computational culture and to stimulate discussion.

Purchase of the book is required ($35.00, scholarships available based on need). Participants are encouraged to attend all three events. There is limited space, so sign up in advance by calling Southern Exposure at 415-863-2141.

Future Everything as Living Lab – The best way to predict the future is to invent it

Reflecting on the way the FutureEverything festival transforms the city of Manchester England into a living lab or play space for participatory experiments on art, society and technology.

View FutureEverything labs here. View slide show on FutureEverything – The City as Living Lab or Play Space here.

FutureEverything is an art, technology and social innovation organisation that runs year round innovation labs and an annual festival of art, music and ideas.

For 15 years, FutureEverything has showcased developments in digital culture, and has at times helped to lead and shape them, as with our early work on mobile and locative media in 2003-4.

Unusually for a festival, FutureEverything seeks to go beyond showcasing cool things, by acting as a space for research experiments on art, technology and society. It has developed a method in which the festival acts as a living laboratory, with the aim to generate new knowledge and ways of doing things.
