Conversations About the Digital: Evening Performance

13th June 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Are you active on Social Media? 
What would you think if your online data were physical tattoos? 
Would you wish for the Right To Be Forgotten?

The average person spends 8 hours and 41 minutes per day on electronic devices, over 313 million people use Twitter and 300 million people use Instagram everyday.

Because of this, we all have a digital tattoo, an unconscious data trail which will outlive ourselves in the flesh. Though we are regularly told about the potential risks of participating online, we often choose to ignore the inherent consequences of this in favour of social gratification, convenience and shareability.

Katie Dale-Everett Dance is a cross-genre digital dance artists who makes work that explores and questions the increasingly digitalised society we live in.

Conversations About the Digital is an audio interactive performance. Participants will answer questions and to carry out simple tasks in connection to their own individual thoughts around and interaction with the digital. The work also reveals and brings together reflections by both Digital Immigrants (those before the boom of technology) and Digital Natives (those born post digital boom) and their concerns and thoughts around privacy, control, identity, interaction and The Right to Be Forgotten.

Conversations About the Digital will be at No.34 with three special evening performances on Tuesday 13 June, at 5.30pm, 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
