Collaboratively organized by EYEBEAM, Topical Cream, and the International Center of Photography (ICP), VISION AND TECHNOLOGY: toward a more just future addresses the implications of visuality, representation, and privacy in the age of surveillance and big data. This public symposium, hosted at the Knockdown Center, convenes artists, technologists, and scholars to explore the following questions:
- How do artists and creative technologists respond to, or intervene in, new technologies to create more equitable ways of seeing and sharing information?
- How does technology facilitate both democratized representation and privacy?
- How can we build toward just futures for our human and post-human selves?
