Talk by software artist and writer Marloes de Valk

Thursday 22 June / 5.00pm - 6.15pm / The Box / FREE, booking required

 

Marloes de Valk considers how we might become more aware of the personal impact of data, and our use of technology. From the environmental and political impact of new technologies, to delving into why we are so ready to give so much of ourselves away, de Valk’s very human way of examining our relationships with big data, surveillance, and artificial intelligence serves as a fitting conclusion to a day of talks concerned with how we are gradually becoming observatories of ourselves.

 

Followed by Q&A.

 

Marloes de Valk is a software artist and writer in the post-despair stage of coping with the threat of global warming and being spied on by the devices surrounding her. Surprised by the obsessive dedication with which we, even post-Snowden, share intimate details about ourselves with an often not too clearly defined group of others, and astounded by the deafening noise we generate while socializing with the technology around us, she is looking to better understand why.

 

Listen to the talk Prove Your Are Non-Human, from transmediale 2017, in which de Valk was a speaker.
