Daniel Rourke is running this short course at the Tate. I expect it will 
be very good!

Data is the lifeblood of today’s economic and social systems. Drones, 
satellites and CCTV cameras capture digital images covertly, while 
smartphones we carry feed data packets into the cloud, fought over by 
corporations and governments. How are we to make sense of all this 
information? Who is to police and distribute it? And what kind of new 
uses can art put it to?

This four-week series led by writer/artist Daniel Rourke 
<http://machinemachine.net/> will explore the politics and potential of 
big data through the lens of contemporary art and the social sciences. 
Participants will assess the impact the digital revolution has had on 
notions of value attached to the invisible, the territorial and the 
tangible. We will look at artists and art activists who tackle the 
conditions of resolution, algorithmic governance, digital colonialism 
and world-making in their work, with a focus on key news events yet to 
unfold in 2016.
