The Datacloud already has a profound impact on our lives. As networks and institutions link and store our data, our data presence becomes more real than our physical being. “Explore your invisible paradise” encourages public use of the ‘information waves’ surrounding us as playgrounds for expression and communication. The panelists will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of life in our ‘invisible paradise’, from the perspectives on art, science and business.
Annet Dekker, Program Manager at Virtueel Platform in Amsterdam. She has been active in the field of media and culture since 1997 as: researcher, publicist, curator, and in workshops. Dekker will critically address the digital and physical impact of electronic devices on a personal and global level.
Lorna Goulden, Creative Director at Philips Design in Eindhoven. She is concerned with innovation; especially design for either physical space ‘experiences’ or future product experiences. Devices help us manage our personal information and shape our identity. Goulden will address potential personal archives by discussing an Intimate Media project called MIME (Multiple Intimate Media Environments).
