An artistic approach to the IoT
At the Folkestone Fringe, CADA will lead a one-day intensive workshop as part of the Folkestone Triennial 2014, 30 August – 2 November 2014
This workshop explores a world where human and nonhuman entities have an equal claim to existence. It will introduce and actively examine the class of technologies described as the Internet of Things (IoT) and explore its problematic implications for the notions of human agency and social identity.
Equally seeing it as an opportunity to provoke new ideas and ludic experimentation, we will ask participants to imagine a world seen from an object’s perspective. Using a set of exploratory questions and practical exercises, people will enter the logic of such a projection from the inside out.
Who this workshop is for
Individuals who are intellectually curious and want to understand how they might begin to approach the complexity of the Internet of Things (IoT) in practice. No technical skills required.
