Innocence vs Data Theft

October 21, 2019Featured, Online Zone

Are Facebook  & Google dangerous? They sure are. Disrupt the accepted wisdom of safety. We need to reinvent, and own, new ways of using the digital world to promote freedom of expression and freedom form exploitation by capitalism.

A Confused Mass, Sophie Rogers

October 9, 2019Artwork, Featured, Online Zone

Inspired by the way sci-fi creates fictional universes, artist Sophie Rogers uses digital software to create navigable simulations of imagined places and scenes.
In August 2019 she undertook a residency with Mansions of the Future, resulting in a digital commission to coincide with Frequency Festival.
This new online commission combines simulations of alternate realities with research into Donna Harraway’s writing on how the human and non-human are inextricably interlinked.

Industrial Quarry, Victoria Roberts

October 9, 2019Artwork, Featured, Online Zone

Large scale black and white images show the magnitude of an industrial quarry and how it disrupts the surrounding landscape. A quarry can have multiple impacts on the environment; visual intrusion, dust, damaged landscape, loss of land and a deterioration in water quality.
Created in response to the Frequency Festival 2019 theme, 'Disruption=Cultural Reinvention', Robert’s photographs put the often-unearthly quarry landscapes front and centre, while her captions explore the work the industry is doing to restore this land to agriculture or woodland.

My Soul Is A Search Engine, Dolly Sen

October 9, 2019Artwork, Featured, Online Zone

Who am I? To be human is to ask questions, even about our very existence, but what if we asked google these questions instead? Would some people get better answers than others?
We look to our phones and devices for answers, but do they let us make ourselves anew, or just replicate the biases in the non-digital world?
This web installation is being commissioned for Frequency 2019 and will be available to view here from 24 October 2019.
