Sorry, dit evenement is niet meer beschikbaar

What would happen if the internet would cease to exist? What could be an alternative way of a sustainable internet structure? These questions are addressed during the mini-festival Goodbye Internet, in which Oddstream explores together with scientists and artists the dead ends and future boundaries of the internet. What can we learn about the internet when we think about it ending? 

On the 25th of November, Tim Maughan (CA/VK), author of sci-fi novel Infinite Detail, speaks with artist and researcher Ingrid Burrington. They will talk about science fiction, hidden digital infrastructures and the impact of unmeasurable late capitalist systems.

What would happen if the internet would cease to exist? What could be an alternative way of a sustainable internet structure? These questions are addressed during the mini-festival Goodbye Internet, in which Oddstream explores together with scientists and artists the dead ends and future boundaries of the internet. What can we learn about the internet when we think about it ending? 

On the 25th of November, Tim Maughan (CA/VK), author of sci-fi novel Infinite Detail, speaks with artist and researcher Ingrid Burrington. They will talk about science fiction, hidden digital infrastructures and the impact of unmeasurable late capitalist systems. 

Tim Maughan’s (UK/CA) science fiction novel Infinite Detail (2019) tells the story of a near future Bristol where activists and artists have set up their own alternative digital network in the area of Stokes Croft, cutting off all connections to Big Tech. But when an anonymous group of hackers pulls out the plug of the internet worldwide, chaos ensues. In Infinite Detail, Tim Maughan outlines a possible future when the internet stops working and the impact it has on our hypernetworked world. 

During this event, the author will get into conversation with artist and researcher Ingrid Burrington (US). Ingrid Burrington’s work focuses on mapping, documenting and identifying digital networks while pointing out hidden elements of the internet. By researching the geographical context and material reality of the network she wants to unravel this system as well as underlying power structures. In 2016 she published Networks of New York, exploring the question of what the internet actually looks like. 

Together they will discuss science fiction, hidden digital infrastructures and the impact of unmeasurable late capitalist systems. Their conversation will take place online. Watch it here.
