Touching Software at the European Media Art Festival

Touching Software at European Media Art Festival

My work Touching Software will be a part of the 2017 European Media Art Festival in Onsabrück, Germany. Titled “PUSH”, the Festival’s thematic statement reads:

Push messages, status and news updates, social bots and hate comments – smartphones and screens are permanently blinking and flashing. Public spaces have always been permeated by announcements, warnings and spectacles. Today, we are experiencing an increase in input pressure – after all, every one of us is a recipient, producer and sender, all rolled into one. Public opinion is characterised by constant information and disinformation. The result: differences between public and private spaces disappear, positions that were thought to be secure vanish, and populists find their way into government.

The Festival runs from 26-30 of April.
