Rethinking Interaction in the Post-Digital: A Roundtable Discussion
June 5, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 7:30 pm BST
The notion of interaction has become commonplace in our everyday, as well as extensively experimented with in contemporary art and theorized in the arts and humanities. However, we think it is a concept that is in serious need of questioning and renegotiation given our increasing imbrication within post-digital systems, and complex social and political environments. Rather than decomposing interaction into ³us-them², ³human-machine², or ³I-we² relationships, we are interested in the (a)symmetric interactions between different entities, and how these give rise to reflexive transformation through the production of the new.
20 invited participants will think through these issues together, with a number of discussion starters from Diann Bauer, Alessandro Ludovico, Luke Pendrell, Nick Srnicek, Nick Thoburn, Nick Thurston and Eva Verhoeven. Topics will include modes of engagement and art-production, post digital publication, digital & post-digital forms of political engagement, algorithmic norms.
The sessions will be introduced by Emmanuelle Waeckerle & James Trafford. Michael Hampton will compile a report of the day.
