This is a series of conversations between Eyebeam residents and fellows exploring how art and new tools can interrogate one another but also converge in creative exploration. 

The second talk in this series features Eyebeam alumni Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Chris Woebken, discussing speculative futures. The talk will explore surveillance culture and art as a form of social critique. Inquiry areas will include the public revelations of Snowden, the current electronic surveillance state, $1000 genome sequencing, DIYbio, genetic privacy, collectively envisioning futures and debating the value of speculative practice.
