Event info

This is the decade of digital dependency. Rather than flicking through pages, we swipe screens. Radio competes with podcasts, and video appears everywhere. Tech opens a window directly into people’s ‘real’ daily lives, curated fiction as they may or may not be. Every intimate thought and action can be captured; accessible and shareable, more than ever before. With so much raw footage, have the media become our mediators? Do our political and cultural stances affect the ‘truths’ we are told? Now we see everyone’s life through a screen, what impact does this have on our behaviour, and on civilisation itself?
