  • Language Game[s]

    Dr. Sheena Calvert & Bert van Beek

    Language Game[s] considers the association between language and human consciousness, and how developments in technology might affect this relationship. Language Game[s] proposes to examine the following questions: what is language as a primary human technology, and how are both language and us, being changed due to the rise of artificial/simulated language systems? In short: what is language, when it is no longer made by humans, but by a machine? Can a machine produce poetry in anything but name?

  • Meta + Assessment

    Tracey Waller & The Ideal Press

    The etymological root of assessment is based on late Middle English: from Old French assesser, based on Latin assidere ‘sit by’ (in medieval Latin ‘levy tax’), from ad- ‘to, at’ + sedere ‘sit’.

The structure of the Life Gas Roof is needed to provide that sought-after protection from exterior influences.

    PowerPoint, in one way or another, directly influences the lives of almost everybody who lives and works in the ‘West’. Anyone who is caught up in the circuits of an increasingly global, post-Fordist system of goods and capital will have suffered through a terrible PowerPoint or delivered one. It has become something of a rite of passage.
