RWX (Read/Write/eXecute) is a three-day worksession and public talks
programme that explores the politics of artistic tool use through the
context of the 'filesystem' – the part of an operating system that
allows a user to read and write to digital memory.
As we increasingly outsource our data storage to "the cloud" and manage
it with the multitude of apps on our smart devices, the traditional
experience of the filesystem – with its associated workplace metaphors
of files and folders – is being outmoded. At RWX, we will speculate on
how this evolving experience of the filesystem mediates the existing
frameworks and aesthetics of digital tool use, and collaboratively
develop a series of responses that imagine how it could influence
artistic production in the future.
RWX is funded by Creative Scotland's Lottery Fund, with support from New
Media Scotland, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, and Furtherfield.
