Panel Discussion: V&A Digital Futures. Self Versioning: exploring the potentials of the digital self

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

Self Versioning is part of the V&A Digital Futures programme co-curated with Rachel Falconer, Head of Art and Technology at SPACE and hosted at The White Building. The session consists of an artist showcase followed by a panel discussion which will probe the gap between the perception of our own identity and its distributed representation via social media platforms. This marks a shift away from the fusion of subject /object (as in the screen / mirror construct of the broadcast era) and towards a dismembering of subject /object in which the participation of others is constitutive to the construct of the digital self. Digital Futures is a regular open event and platform for displaying and discussing of work by researchers, artists,designers, companies and other professionals working with art, technology, design, science and beyond. It is also networking event, bringing together people from different backgrounds and disciplines with a view to generating and future collaborations.
