Celebrating the 800th year of the signing of Magna Carta and the 25th birthday of the WorldWideWeb, Liberation was Frequency’s focus for 2015. Data trails, predictive policing, consumer profiling; what are the ethics of a Big Data society? What are the rights of the Cybercitizen? The debates call for a new Magna Carta Digita, encoded by the people for the people.
The third iteration of Frequency Festival hosted an extraordinary programme of digital art exhibitions, bespoke installations, live performance and energetic debate around the theme of Liberty, freedom and the digital revolution.
The city of Lincoln is home to one of only four surviving copies of the ‘Great Charter’, which is recognised as the foundation of constitutional democracy and the source of many of the civil liberties enjoyed in free countries today.
Digital artists and interactive designers from across the globe, up and down the UK, and from the local area presented new and exciting works of art exploring how the digital revolution has impacted, transformed and enhanced contemporary ideas of liberty and freedom.
