PANEL: Technology, Identity, and Power @ M+ Museum (06.4.22)

April 25, 2022 - Homepage

Thrilled to be speaking with curator Ulanda Blair and artists Jason Li and Miao Ying…

How does the digital era influence our lives?

Video games and digital media are today integral forms of visual culture. M+ dives into these visual mediums in this global conversation hosted on the interactive livestreaming platform, Twitch—used by creators from gaming, the arts, and more.

Local and international artists, writers, researchers, and designers will join Amsterdam-based media and design studio Moniker in a synchronous playthrough of Touch for Luck, as they discuss various social and cultural phenomena of the digital world:

  • Addiction behaviours (19:00 to 20:00)
  • Data usage and surveillance (20:00 to 21:00)
  • Self-image and community building (21:00 to 22:00)

Tune in to this live three-hour ‘marathon’ session to explore how the digital world impacts us and, more importantly, how we utilise its highly visual nature to share ideas and advocate for change.

Ulanda Blair, Curator of Moving Image; Kate Gu, Producer of Digital Special Projects; and Sunny Cheung, Curator of Design and Architecture at M+, will moderate this event—the second session of M+’s ‘What is Visual Culture?’ series.
