The relationship between art, technology, and a global society is a tenuous one. Often technologist work on projects that have a devastating effect on another society somewhere on earth. Who is the patron? What is this money used for? How will it affect bliss or misery somewhere else on earth? We promote projects in R and D but we hope to keep the critical discourses of ‘why should this get fund an made’ alive.
We also open this up to the ways in which the new education might be structured around ‘projects of inclusiveness’ for grads and undergrads. We have a special focus on social media, immersive environments, and the ways that technology can deliver forums equitably throughout the world. Civic information liberates the curious.
