Conflict of Interface (eng)

5,565

Published on

The internet, once associated with openness and decentralization, is increasingly understood in terms of control exerted by government agencies (like the NSA) and advertising (targeted ads). What is less commonly discussed is how this subliminal control is embedded in interface design. Web interfaces demand our silent obedience with every page load. This talk offers new approaches to challenging the politics of the interface.

After the talk three projects were discussed:
- ShiftSpace
- The Turing Normalizing Machine
- Adnauseam
