Public Trial . 13
Voices informed by technology travel further, faster and into more corners of the world than they ever have previously. Having passed the great cultural singularity we face the dilemma of consequence; our capability to communicate has outpaced our ability to manage that communication. In the 21st century opinion is commerce. Media empires rise and fall under its weight. Our clicks and views have been capitalized, traded and sold like any other commodity.Emerging questions:
Are we informed content capitalists? Has the maturity of the content generation caught up with its habits? Can we distinguish between privacy and anonymity? Can we regard the rights we have to one, but not the other. Can we accept the consequences of either? Does the presence of so many opinions inform the truth of one?
A public, civic action. Participants will respond to topical discourse distilled from popular media. Privacy intact, anonymity discarded.
