Theme : "Going Dark" 

Our actions are increasingly mediated by data. Previously we formed our artifacts, now they form us. Woven into a seamless network, they quantify our lives, affect our thinking and become intrinsic to our being. As such, the urge to go dark has never been greater. Arguably it has also never been harder. But is concealment a solution or rather a retreat? Perhaps there is a quality to this quantification that reveals the full potential of the new codified world? Can you have control over data? Who has access to it and why? Data takes on a life of its own as it’s replicated on servers across the globe. It can’t be deleted, it piles up like trash. In fact, polluting your path with fake data may offer better protection than cloaking or jamming. But does this not come into conflict with the open structure of the internet? While digital detritus fills the open web, darknets (corporate, military, governmental and civilian) loom large, inaccessible to the public, bigger than the internet itself. This reveals the other extreme of the new power structure: Secret networks, beyond the reach of the public and reserved for an elite. Can you escape their control without restricting yourself? Similarly part of our inner being is not yet accessible or recordable, and we yearn for what is out of reach: our own dark matter. Who lurks in these unexplored spaces? Can you engage authentically and not reveal yourself? Can you go dark?

 

 

See you soon art hacker!
