Though social networks are at the heart of how we live, circulating
knowledge and fostering innovation, they are also closely monitored,
leading to hyper-centralised forms of surveillance. This symposium studies
how people contribute to ‘a permanent capture of life into data’ through
daily routines of surfing, shopping, and lifelogging. It will bring
together artists, academics, technologists and users, to instigate public
debate around issues of privacy in relation to big data capture, raise
awareness regarding the scale and applications of those phenomena, propose
ways of responding to loss of privacy, and consider avenues for resistance
to the risks of self-quantification.

Chaired by Dr Maria Chatzichristodoulou aka Maria X and Prof. Phil Hammond
(London South Bank University)

Speakers: Nick Tandavanitj (Blast Theory), Anna Dumitriu, Sarah T Gold,
Marc Garrett (Furtherfield), Daphne Dragona (Transmediale), Dr Maria
Sourbati (University of Brighton), Dr Perry Keller (King's College), Emilie
Giles and Alan Waldock, Prof. James Connely (University of Hull).
