This day-long session brings together four internationally renowned practitioners from across Asia, Europe, and the United States, in conversation with writer and curator Kerry Doran. These artists and designers all use online tools to create born-digital work that processes, visualises, and critiques the social effects of technology, while developing alternative propositions for how we relate to the internet. These four discussions are intended to foster public discourse around how mass data collection, artificial intelligence, simulations, social media, and video-game design are being explored by contemporary practitioners working in the constantly changing online world.
