State Machines is a programme of activities devoted to the investigation of new relationships between states, citizens and the stateless made possible by emerging technologies. Focussing on how such technologies impact identity and citizenship, digital labour and finance

Every time a smartphone powers up, their user is tied inextricably into data, laws and flowing bytes to different countries. Their every personal expression is framed and mediated by digital platforms which now include those operating new kinds of currencies, financial exchange, and labour relations that bypass corporations and governments.

Meanwhile these same technologies increase governmental powers of surveillance, allow corporations to extract ever more complex working arrangements, and, although seemingly the epitome of globalization, they do little to slow the construction of actual walls along actual borders.

We ask how might the digital subjects of today become active, engaged, and effective digital citizens of tomorrow?

State Machines now launches an open call for a new commissioned artistic project.. What kind of Project ? :

  • efforts and actions that resist new enclosures and preserve mobilities, freedom of assembly and other hard-won rights
  • unintended impacts of digital flows on physical bodies, places and infrastructure
  • shifting techniques for controls and flows of information and finance by governments, private companies and individuals;
  • public deliberation and free speech in social media – algorithmic and human corruption and its counterforces;
  • new tools and data for wrangling the personal and political impacts of cloud computing

The call is open to artists, technologists, activists, inventors and individuals, groups and hybrid human- artificial intelligence collaborations.

We are interested in all art forms and actions that can be encountered and experienced across networks, online and in physical exhibition. We welcome diverse viewpoints, experimental and playful approaches.

Fading Memories The social, political and economic future is determined globally by the evolution of digital technologies. The boundaries between the analogue and digital spheres have become increasingly blurred, and the digital has become an integral part of our actual reality. Fading memories devoted a year of international events to the themes of privacy and data ownership in the digital age against the backdrop of developments in the countries of north-western Europe.

 

What we give away when we log on to a public WiFi network experiment of creating a fake network and stealing data from visiting mobile phone in public space.The idea that public WiFi networks are not secure is not exactly news. It is, however, news that can’t be repeated often enough. There are currently more than 1.43 billion smartphone users worldwide and more than 150 million smartphone owners in the U.S. In the U.S., more than 92 million American adults own a tablet and more than 155 million The US census has numbers. own a laptop. Each year the worldwide demand for more laptops and tablets increases. In 2013, an estimated 206 million tablets and 180 million laptops were sold worldwide. Probably everyone with a portable device has once been connected to a public WiFi network: while having a coffee, on the train, or at a hotel. by Wouter Slotboom
