Augment and Disrupt is a 3-day mini-festival that will explore various urgent topics surrounding the interactions between art, society and technology; from the contested territories of new digital platforms to the future of the interface.
At what point does an error become a mistake, a fail, and what makes it the celebrated source of unprecedented ideas and inventions? When is an error an oversight and when is it intentional deception, a fake?
An error is a discrepancy from what we expect, a deviation from the norm … but what is the norm and who establishes it? An error doesn’t have to be a mistake; it can be an opportunity!
Marking the centennial anniversary of independent Latvia and Baltic countries, this year's festival takes up the call by becoming a space for artistic interventions and hot-button conversations addressing the complexity and future of digital society, especially with regards to ubiquitous surveillance and data privacy.
The anniversary festival conference titled GLOBAL CONTROL, investigates issues from three main perspectives:
Hybrid Wars and Post-Truth ,Surveillance and Immersion ,The Next Big Privacy
Voices is a digital editorial project and part of NGV Triennial.
The name of the project refers to the billions of voices that make up our global community. We wanted to see how the five Triennial themes, of time, virtual, change, movement and body, manifest in the real world, through the voices and practices of people working in fields like medicine, literature, creative arts and critical theory.
The ACADIA 2016 Conference will foster design work and research from the worlds of practice and academia that lie at the intersection between procedural design, designed environments and autonomous machines. More specifically, this conference will seek to explore recent work within the current trend in computational design to develop and apply quasi-cognitive machines; the integration of software, information, fabrication and sensing to generate mechanisms for interfacing with the physical realm.
