Previously at the ICA - Seasons
31 Jan 2009 – 23 Feb 2009
Over the last 30 years, technological changes have altered how we see, read and even think, often making us crave a more active involvement in the culture that we consume and giving rise to a new aesthetic. Going beyond Web 2.0 hype, Feedback wonders how our experience of growing up with computer games, the internet and texting has changed us as human beings, and asks what opportunities and dangers it brings for our culture.
In his new book Cyburbia, James Harkin, Director of Talks at the ICA and lead programmer of the Feedback season discusses the roots of our feedback culture in cybernetic experiments of the 1940s and makes the case for the new messages our new media need.
The use of camera phones and recording equipment during talks and events in the Feedback series (except Mark Leckey's talk) is encouraged. Snap it, video it, blog it and then share it with us .
Please note that if you attend events in this season your image may be recorded by the ICA or other event attendees and appear online.
