PUBLIC PROGRAMME ESSAY #5
It is no secret that kids spend a great deal of their time online, but what does this mean for parents, and should they be doing anything about it? This essay will provide some insight into some common misconceptions often made in relation to generations and digital technology.
My recollections about surveillance in the digital age, following my Q&A at Tate Liverpool with the curator Patrizia Constantin. Hito Steyerl’s artwork provides a fantastic platform for discussion as we interpret her representation of the poor image in society.
PIBLIC PROGRAMME ESSAY #4
In the fourth event of the Cognitive Sensations programme, THECUBE became host to a conversation exploring the impact of the digital age on identity and health. This essay will explore the transformation of the self through an evaluation of current digital practices in relation to the body.
PUBLIC PROGRAMME ESSAY #3
An essay exploring artistic practice investigating the impact of the digital age on perception. The narrative evolved from my observations of Cognitive Sensations, an event consisting of a series of presentations by a multi-disciplined panel, a participatory artwork called The Artist’s Presence (2018), and a Q&A session. This essay will seek to represent some of the issues we addressed, using examples of artistic practice to illustrate the conversations that artists can bring to the great debate surrounding screen culture.
PUBLIC PROGRAMME ESSAY #2
An essay exploring the issues discussed in the event ‘Attention and Memory in the Digital Age’. Attention is a hot topic in the great digital debate. We know that multitasking allows us to spread our attention across a number of tasks, but does this allow us to be more focussed or does it simply make us distracted?
PUBLIC PROGRAMME ESSAY #1
This essay will investigate how digital technology engagement affects the cognitive process of perception, employing the discourse explored in the opening panel discussion of Cognitive Sensations. In the debate, we discussed the influences of virtual reality and digital technology on the relationship between perception and the environment.
On the morning of the opening, we are getting very excited for our panel discussion exploring perception, and would like to share a promo video with you for Cognitive Sensations.
An introduction to the Cognitive Sensations public programme, investigating the neurological effects of the digital age. Featuring talks, artworks and debates, the programme will uncover several concepts exploring the physiological and psychological changes occurring in humans, as a result of their engagement with digital technology.
