‘Something or Other’ Symposium

Students Carlos Canali, Chia Ying Tsai, Lizzy Zhen Li, Chien Yu Lin presented their Future of Goverment project at the Something or Other symposium at LCC alongside talks by Oliver Smith from the Demystification Committee. Pictured is Carlos participating in the panel discussion.

The evening theme was: How low can you go?

In designing new practices within, across and, perhaps even for, platforms, at what level can or should we operate? How many black boxes should we open? How low do we need to go? This talk will consider whether, in order to challenge hegemonic platforms, we need to reach for their low-level source code, or perhaps, with platforms building upon platforms, that’s an increasingly unattainable ideal.
