Starting from Yoldas' project An Ecosystem of Excess and her artistic approach through speculative design and biology, this panel will analyze and discuss the impact on what we call "nature" and the term's ontological crisis.
In line with the transmediale 2014 thematic this panel asks what today's burning net political questions are in the afterglow of the digital revolution? What has happened to the connection between the mainstreaming of the Internet and the ideology and politics of openness and freedom?
Join us for the opening ceremony of transmediale 2014, where we introduce afterglow as a diagnosis of post-digital culture. Together with a number of prominent guest speakers we will outline the “afterglow effects” that define the current ambiguous state of digital culture in between trash and treasure. This event is free, no ticket or pass required.
