The Eyebeam Center for the Future of Journalism (ECFJ) is a new experimental grant-making program that supports artists producing innovative and revelatory journalistic work for major media outlets.
Eyebeam alum, James Bridle, will speak about his latest book New Dark Age: Technology and the End of the Future.
We live in times of increasing inscrutability. Our news feeds are filled with unverified, unverifiable speculation, much of it automatically generated by anonymous software. As a result, we no longer understand what is happening around us. Underlying all of these trends is a single idea: the belief that quantitative data can provide a coherent model of the world, and the efficacy of computable information to provide us with ways of acting within it. Yet the sheer volume of information available to us today reveals less than we hope. Rather, it heralds a new Dark Age: a world of ever-increasing incomprehension.
Eyebeam’s newest cohort will work on projects that examine how art and technology can challenge dominant systems that exclude and prevent access.
Join us on October 25th for an event that explores the implications of state secrets and corporate censorship on artistic interpretation. Learn more.
