Platforms and Their Protagonists II


We are all aware of the physical manifestation and vast energy consumption of the internet, revealed through the data centre; a windowless hum of silicone and copper constructed in semi-urban environments. But what evidence is there of the digital platforms that rely on this superstructure?

Data-hungry tech giants incite the growth of an unseen technological social production. In an age of accelerated computational reliance, digital platforms have pervaded our homes and workplaces, controlling what we consume and when in the pursuit of capital.

Tihs workshop hosted by the Anise Gallery as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2019, consisted of activity based exercises that walked participants through the SOS critical design methodology. The intense workshop makes for an exciting day of future thinking around one of the most contemporary subject areas. The workshop is designed to be politically charged, provoking debate and critical thinking whilst being fast-paced enough to remain light-touch and fun for all participants.
