About this event

In this workshop we will explore the relationship between internet infrastructure and energy consumption. The internet is often presented as removed from the physical world. Words like the “cloud” and “cyberspace” obscure its relationship to the environment and the physical world.

Participants will learn about internet infrastructure and they ways in which it consumes energy. We will look at a number of projects exploring this topic. We will learn about tools for estimating energy consumption and carbon footprints online. We will discuss whether there is a relationship between the resource consumption of websites and the ways in which users interact with them. Additionally, we will identify opportunities for technical, artistic, activist interventions in this space.
