#1157: Capturing the Digital Culture of a Virtual Help Desk for the Elderly in “New Update Available – Version 2.1”

New Update Available - Version 2.1 is a VR installation piece that blends contemporary audio documentary recordings of computer help sessions for the elderly, but then recreates these characters in VR within a speculative future where elders gather together within a virtual space in Metaverse with avatars in all in order to get their weekly computer questions answered. It's a unique approach of capturing a segment of digital culture that asks the user to reflect upon a time in the future when they may need help getting their own technology questions answered. The experience takes place over a single session as people log on and eventually log out at the end, and so the narrative structure is more about documenting the communal process and relationship dynamics within this community that is recontextualized by setting the time in the distant future. A fun dimension of this piece is being able to watch the activities of a couple of peers in this help session as they relive their nostalgic moments of Internet culture, which happens to be the bleeding edge of digital culture today. I had a chance to unpack this experience with director Jeroen van Loon at IDFA DocLab 2022. This is a listener-supported podcast through the Voices of VR Patreon. Music: Fatality

Cities and regions across the world have experienced profound disruption from the rise of digital platforms across all areas of urban life. From housing, to transport, shopping, and the way we work, global firms such as ‘Airbnb' and ‘Uber' typically evade local (place based) policy and regulatory settings. However, their impacts have large socio-spatial footprints which need to be understood and factored into future urban policy and planning. Understood within the wider prism of technological innovation and emerging forms of digital automation across the urban sector, this session engages critically with notions of the ‘smart city'. Will the future city be dictated by ‘techno-capitalist' firms or are ‘smart' and socially accountable forms of urban governance still possible? Panel Dr Niels Van Doorn, Amsterdam University Dr Sarah Barns, Urban Strategist & Researcher Dr Justine Humphry, University of Sydney Rory Brown, Smart Places at Transport for NSW Chaired by Dr Sophia Maalsen, University of Sydney Niels van Doorn is an Assistant Professor of New Media and Digital Culture in the Department of Media Studies, University of Amsterdam, and the Principal Investigator of the ERC-funded Platform Labor research project (2018-2023).

Currently a Co-Director of urban media practice Esem Projects, Sarah is also an Industry Fellow at the QUT Design Lab and a Visiting Fellow at the University of Melbourne Centre for Cities. Dr Justine Humphry is a Senior Lecturer in Digital Cultures in the Department of Media and Communications at the University of Sydney. Justine researches the cultures and politics of digital media and emerging technologies with a focus on the social consequences of mobile, smart and data-driven technologies.

Rory Brown is the A/Executive Director Smart Places at Transport for NSW. In this role he leads the NSW Government to deliver great places and outcomes for people using connected technologies and data solutions, working collaboratively across all tiers of government, with the research and academia sector and industry. He was also the architect of the flagship Smart Western City Program to co-create the Western Parkland City as a future-focused, digitally enabled city.

According to the late Father Gabrielle Amorth, co-founder of the International Association of Exorcists, Hitler, Stalin, ISIS, Harry Potter and Yoga were all, in one way or another, touched by demonic influence, This does perhaps go some way towards explaining how he managed to rack up over 150,000 exorcisms throughout his long life. Of all of these cases, however, he admitted openly that only a small minority had been true, legitimate cases of demonic possession. Despite this, exorcism remains more popular today than in any other time in history, where it has existed as a long running ritual spanning centuries, continents and cultures. From personal demons to group possessions, humans battle with the Devil is a long, winding history of violence, perversion and projectile vomit.

The series will focus on socio-ecological futures in urban environments and will include talks and workshops with international and national experts. This is the second year of events co-curated by The Digital Hub and NCAD, following last year's highly successful Digital Cultures webinar series. Digital Hub and NCAD collaborate with Turning Ground The Turning Ground series aims to create a space that brings artists, local communities, activists and academics together to discuss how creative ecologies and socio-ecological futures can be supported in an urban environment, particularly focusing on the Dublin 8 area. The series is convened by The Digital Hub's current Artist-in-Residence Seoidín O'Sullivan and NCAD lecturer and artist Gareth Kennedy. Focusing on creative urban ecologies, the series of talks and workshops will focus on a range of topics including art and critical ecological practice, local Dublin 8 community ecological projects, urban city toolkits for climate justice, permacultures, and urban ecological mapping. Turning Ground will bring a fresh perspective on issues such as local ecologies, climate and the environment, with international speakers including Panagiota Kotsila (Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability), Margaretha Haughwout (Colgate University), Sinead Mercier (UCD Sutherland School of Law), and Mojisola Adebayo (Queen Mary, University of London) & Nicole Wolf (Goldsmiths, University of London).

Marina Otero Verzier is an architect, researcher and curator, who is also the current Head of the MA in Social Design program at Design Academy Eindhoven. Until very recently, she was the director of research at the Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam. Her work touches on many socio-political and environmental dimensions of design and cultural production; as well as the emergence of new paradigms for institutions. Together with Marina we unpack what designing the social might mean, and we explore the outer reaches of architectural research; both in the political and ecological realms. I think her particular mix of cautious optimism and her introspective openness allows us to reflect on how culture can be put to work, both in everyday life and in the sites of knowledge production, whether it's the museum, the school, or the archive.EPISODE NOTES & LINKSMarina Otero Verzier is an architect. She was formerly Director of Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI), the Dutch Institute for Architecture, Design, and Digital Culture. She is the Department Head of the MA in Social Design at Design Academy Eindhoven. https://www.designacademy.nl/p/about-dae/community/marina-otero-verzierDesign Academy Eindhoven is an interdisciplinary educational institute for art, architecture, and design in Eindhoven, Netherlands. https://www.designacademy.nl/Het Nieuwe Instituut is a cultural centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It focuses on architecture, design, and digital culture.https://hetnieuweinstituut.nl/homeThe term “canon” pops up quite often, it refers to cultural works (books, buildings, etc) that come to be accepted as exceptional and set the criteria for good work. Canon has the same root as Kanun, or Qanun, which means the rule, or the law. So in a way, these works become unquestionable. Cartesian Grid refers to grids often used in architecture as the basis for organizing spatial form, as composed of squares (or cubes) aligned with the Cartesian coordinate axes. Cartesian coordinate axes exist in a coordinate system that specifies each point uniquely by a pair of numerical coordinates, which are the signed distances to the point from two fixed perpendicular oriented lines, measured in the same unit of length. Conceived as a spa resort, the exhibition Lithium took place in 2020 at Het Nieuwe. It delved into the beneficial and destructive aspects of the eternal human search for energy and reflected on the role of the chemical element lithium in powering today's economy. https://lithium.hetnieuweinstituut.nl/enMore-than-human is an edited volume by Andres Jacque, Marina, and our previous guest Lucia Pietroiusti. https://research-development.hetnieuweinstituut.nl/en/morethanhumanCoauthored by Marina, Drone: Unmanned.

Alice's guest on this podcast is Dr Olga Boichak, a Ukrainian-born sociologist who works as a lecturer in Digital Cultures at the University of Sydney. Editor of the Digital War Journal, Olga's particular research interest is the war-media nexus. She has spent years studying participatory warfare in Ukraine, looking at how civilians have used mobile media and open-source intelligence to engage remotely in military conflict; and also at how digital media have been facilitating grassroots activism, from local military crowd-funding to the development of transnational humanitarian aid networks. Her research helps us understand the symbiotic relationship between digital and real-world activities: not just how war and digital media shape each other, but how digitally-driven volunteer movements that emerge in wartime can have longer-term effects on civil society development and broader institutional change. In the podcast, Olga discusses the 'reflexive control' that Russia has long tried to exert over Ukraine since its independence in 1991. She then reflects on the long history of 'productive resistance' that ordinary Ukrainians have engaged in, which over the years has helped to forge a stronger sense of collective identity and shared civic values. She discusses the many forms of civic participation in military activity that have evolved since Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, and this gets us talking about blurred boundaries between war and peace, about people's proximity to and distance from conflict, and about the ethical dilemmas surrounding involvement and non-involvement. Along the way, we discuss the role that digital media have played in the conflict in Ukraine. Olga analyses Russia's use of social media from 2014 onwards, in particular their efforts to convince the wider world that people in Donbas have long had strong separatist leanings. She  explains how social media activists in Mariupol helped to disrupt that message back in 2014, which is perhaps why Russia has been so determined to conquer Mariupol in 2022.  We also talk about the ways in which social media have facilitated a range of humanitarian responses to the war in Ukraine - and how social media have been shaping our understanding and perception of the conflict more broadly. In many ways, our twitter feeds are full of very conventional pictures of war (tanks, bombed out buildings, soldiers firing weapons), reinforcing long-established habits of visualising conflict. At the same time, more innovative  forms of data visualisation (such as stats on the length of time people are spending in bomb shelters each day) are helping us to grasp the 'slow violence' of conflict on civilian populations.  New trends in representation are emerging all the time, challenging the traditional metrics we have long used to assess the costs of war and offering us different conceptual frameworks for understanding what is going on. Olga has family in Ukraine, so we talked a little about what they have been going through.

Emma hosts Paolo Gerbaudo, Director of the Centre for Digital Culture at King's College London, to discuss his recent book The Great Recoil: Politics after Populism and Pandemic.  Emma first starts off by covering the amoral impending execution of Melissa Lucio, despite growing evidence that she was not responsible for the death of her child. Then, Emma touches briefly upon the pro-wrestling promo that is the preview for Donald Trump's sit down interview with Piers Morgan. Paolo joins Emma afterwards to explain the concept behind the "Great Recoil", as well as the question of what kind of management system is most functional/beneficial for this particular market economy. Paolo also explains the concept of what the left should and does value in terms of the idea of "security"-social security, environmental security, as opposed to the traditional definitions that entail physical protection (ahem, military spending.) He notes that there is overwhelming evidence globally that people thrive within their lives when provided with social safety nets in order to succeed. Paolo then defines the concept of "neo-statism", and how a concept of delivering public goods without the necessitation of a market justification would open up so many more avenues to improve people's overall wellbeing. Emma and Paolo then touch on the question of how the prospects of democracy look globally in an era demanding more of state action regardless of political system, what happens when a country doesn't have an efficient public health, transit, and infrastructural sector can lead to (ahem, COVID, the entire US economy), and how these concepts being discussed either dovetail or mesh with the idea of "populism" as its been exemplified in the 2010's with Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders's campaigns. They then touch on bureaucracy and how, while sometimes a bad word, it can be used to benefit the most vulnerable people (incentivizing young bureaucrats, working class bureaucrats and how people with access to this knowledge and literacy can transmit it to people who've never had the luxury of hiring people to understand it.) They finally touch on the US's booster shot efforts, the massive economic and social infrastructure of Amazon, and how outsourcing this type of bureaucracy to consultancies and corporations only weakens public sector structure to do what it would be capable of doing without these obstacles. Then, in the Fun Half, Emma is joined by Matt and Brandon to discuss Rudy Giuliani's much ballyhooed debut on the Masked Singer, Don Jr. weighing in (slurring in) on the Libs of TikTok drama, Dennis Prager discussing whether leftists (who he fears more than death) can ever be truly happy, and Tulsi Gabbard continuing to turn into Dave Rubin by weighing in on the Florida "parents rights" legislation on Hannity (surprise-she's into it).

Her practice explores the connections between new media, technologies and geology and considers the future legacy our digital culture will leave on our Earth. Work is created through a combination of media and techniques including photography and sculpture. Of her artwork Katie says: Technology can create visual problems. It is hard to see, it is difficult to understand the scale of or imagine as a physical infrastructure. It is also problematic to fully understand the environmental issues it can create beyond our personal devices. Technology is hidden in code, buried in tubes, stored in data centers and the ‘cloud'. As a visual artist and photographer, I am exploring ways of how to bring the digital into physical spaces through sculptural objects and site-specific landscapes, visualising how the technological sublime will disguise itself or fossilise within the Earth's strata millions of years in the future.   In this episode we chat about the digital footprint and its  history  that leaves traces and remains suspended in time. What does it look like? Katie's art speaks up and shows us. We talk about her exploration and use of rocks and how the landscape informs her work.  This is The Beautiful ErrorVisualising  imperfection in digital culture and exploring technology inspired by sculpture.  Katie's book recommendation:Navigating the Art World by Delphian Gallery @delphiangalleryGeology of Media by Jussi Parikka You can find out more about Katie, and The Beautiful Error below:Website : www.thebeautifulerror.comInstagram: @the_beautiful_errorKatie is a member of @artcanorg @waspsstudios @visual.arts.scotland @societyscottishartists

The Revolution is Digital — A Manifesto for Today's Social Impact Leader

View the digital experience: https://designbycosmic.com/manifesto/The world is changing. The social impact sector must too. We are living through a paradigm shift into the information era. Technology — specifically the internet — has fundamentally changed our culture and society at large. Today, we find ourselves in a rapidly evolving world shaped by the benefits and unintended consequences of technological innovation and global connectivity. No aspect of society is untouched by this transformation, from how we connect and communicate with friends and family, to how we shop for goods and services, consume entertainment, meet potential partners, and perform our daily work.Through this shift, the information era also democratizes knowledge, distributing control from information monopolies to the individual. It's easier to create a platform, publish ideas, and reach other people across the globe more quickly and efficiently than ever before. What a powerful opportunity for those of us working to create positive social change: fighting for the underserved and underrepresented, creating more equitable structures for our citizens, protecting and preserving our environment, educating our children, and striving to create a world that works better for more of us.But the information era is a double-edged sword. As knowledge becomes more freely distributed and accessible, attention grows more scarce and difficult to capture and maintain. Ideas and opinions spread through algorithm-powered digital platforms analyze your behavior and social connections, learn your beliefs and biases, and feed you a carefully curated onslaught of news, opinions, truths, and falsehoods that shape your perception of reality — all irresistibly delivered through palm-sized digital devices.And despite the promise of democratized information, those in power can still buy more influence and spread ideas and misinformation constructed to shape opinion, affect policy, and further divide us across issues and identities.The internet isn't going away. And new media channels — social platforms, email inboxes, websites, and digital experiences — will only grow in adoption and influence. Thus, as a social impact leader, it is your duty and your mandate to embrace and leverage our digital-first culture as a force for good or be outplayed by those using it for other purposes.To do this, you must learn to think and act like a digital media company rather than a pre-information-era charity. Once embraced, thinking like a digital media company can help you build brand awareness, organize a coalition of deeply impassioned supporters, and lead the conversation around the issues you care about most. A digital-first model also allows you to build organizational capacity, break the starvation cycle, and create a sustainable revenue stream.This approach is not just for the global, advocacy-focused nonprofit. It is also for the social enterprise, the philanthropist, the impact investment firm, and the scrappy nonprofit doing good behind the scenes. In each of these cases, creating change requires spreading an idea about the future and convincing more of the right people that your vision is possible. What follows is a manifesto for the social impact leader who is ready to embrace this paradigm shift. Those of us who are fighting to help create a better future — and who are bold enough to actually do it. Many will read these principles and cast them aside as optimistic, naive, or impractical. This path is not for them. It is for future-thinking leaders who see the opportunity for a once-in-a-generation transformation, get inspired, and know it must be done. Here's to hoping you are one of them.
