Reminder: Re-rooting Digital Culture - Media Art Ecologies.

The ideas for this in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary panel will ex­plore the
re­la­tion­ship be­tween dig­i­tal cul­ture and cli­mate change,
de­vel­op­ing themes adopted in grass-roots, emerg­ing and es­tab­lished
prac­tices in art, de­sign, ac­tivism and sci­ence.

Over the last decade the aware­ness of an­thro­pogenic cli­mate change
has emerged in par­al­lel with hy­per-con­nec­tive dig­i­tal net­works.
In the con­text of en­vi­ron­men­tal and eco­nomic col­lapse peo­ple
around the world are seek­ing al­ter­na­tive vi­sions of pros­per­ity
and sus­tain­able ways of liv­ing.

While the legacy of the car­bon fu­eled In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion plays
it­self out, we find our­selves grap­pling with ques­tions about the
fu­ture im­pli­ca­tions of fast-evolv­ing global dig­i­tal
in­fra­struc­ture. By their very na­ture the new tools, net­works and
be­hav­iours of pro­duc­tiv­ity, ex­change and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween
hu­mans and ma­chines grow and de­velop at an ac­cel­er­ated rate. The
rhetoric, aes­thet­ics, tech­nics and as­so­ci­ated eth­i­cal ques­tions
of dig­i­tal cul­ture are fun­da­men­tally chang­ing so­cial re­la­tions
as well as the na­ture of our ma­te­r­ial ex­is­tence.

The ideas for this in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary panel have grown out of
Fur­ther­field's Media Art Ecolo­gies pro­gramme and will ex­plore the
re­la­tion­ship be­tween dig­i­tal cul­ture and cli­mate change,
de­vel­op­ing themes adopted in grass-roots, emerg­ing and es­tab­lished
prac­tices in art, de­sign, ac­tivism and sci­ence.

Pan­elists are artists and ac­tivists whose prac­tices ad­dress the
in­ter­re­la­tion of tech­no­log­i­cal and nat­ural processes: be­ings
and things, in­di­vid­u­als and mul­ti­tudes, mat­ter and pat­terns.
They take an eco­log­i­cal ap­proach that chal­lenges growth eco­nom­ics
and techno-con­sumerism and at­tends to the na­ture of co-evolv­ing,
in­ter­de­pen­dent en­ti­ties and con­di­tions; they they ac­ti­vate
net­works (dig­i­tal, so­cial, phys­i­cal) to work with eco­log­i­cal
themes and Free and Open processes.
