Digital Wild wanders into the digital wilderness, with the safety lock off, out-of-control and freely roaming about in -or even out of- the technosphere. We need to look into the dark corners where our digital tools have found their own agendas and purposes. We explore the surprising and unforeseen uses of our digital creations.
Digital Wild speakers investigate the wild from several perspectives and a wide range of creative disciplines. In a world gone totally wired, we must push the reflections and critical discussions about our relationship to the digital. Digital Wild conference does so by debating the digital technology in a playful manner, pushing us to unsee and unlearn our ordinary perceptions of the digital.
What does it mean to be Digitally Wild? What about these examples: What if your parrot falls in love with the virtual voice assistant Alexa? Has technology then gone wrong? Or found its real purpose? Are you scared of Artificial Intelligence stealing your job in the future? What about AI becoming the artist itself? Or perhaps your partner in the ultimate art-crime that you have been looking for? And what if the next cryptocurrency came fully analogous and even knitted? How to turn the unreal into real coinage, disrupting the complex concepts of technological black boxes, letting users pocket actual authority over the digital?
Digital Wild Conference gathers a wide selection of experts to take us on a tour between our wildest digital dreams and darkest technological nightmares.
