DIWO: Do It With Others – No Ecology without Social Ecology

Abstract (in English): 

In an age of post-industrial revolution, the acceleration of technological development has had a direct impact on our everyday lives, in which our behaviours and relationships are modified via our interactions with digital technology. As artists, we have adapted to the complexities of contemporary information communication technologies, initiating different forms of creative, network production. Another set of societal factors has also become equally significant as concerns about climate change and the economic crisis pose questions about how we adapt, as people and as artists. As imaginative practitioners exploring the possibilities of creative agency that these networks and social media offer, we need to ask ourselves about our role in the larger conversation. What part do we play in the evolving techno-consumerist landscape which is shown to play on our desire for intimacy and community while actually isolating us from each other.
