“The future is already here..it's just not very evenly distributed.”
William Gibson 1993
Participants of ”From cradle-to-grave : Tech won’t save us”, in collaboration with artist and independent researcher Benjamin Gaulon, will explore the social and environmental impacts of information and communication technologies, using the life-cycle analysis as a framework for that research.
After this systemic analysis, they will explore specific works of new media artists, designers, researchers and hacktivists that are addressing those issues.
Finally, participants will be invited to produce a work and a presentation related to technological sustainability and social justice, on a specific topic of their choosing.
Using strategies such as Tactical Media, Retail Poisoning
, Urban Hacking and more, participants are invited to test and to present their work in public and commercial spaces (online or offline).
