I'll be in Brighton for this.


Invitation: Haunted Random Forest Festival, Apr 21-23

You are invited to join us April 21-23 for the Haunted Random Forest 
<http://bit.ly/HauntedRandom>, a new festival at the Sussex Humanities 
Lab and Lighthouse Arts in Brighton, UK aimed at exploring the ways we 
understand and critique machine learning systems through 
interdisciplinary, hands-on, discussion-based and aesthetic approaches.

By critiquing these systems together as a community, the human elements 
at work in computational processes will be brought to light, 
illuminating the ways we understand the digital as a set of entities and 
processes that can be known, understood and built. A recurrent theme 
will be an interrogation of the role of language as a practice that can 
limit cultural understandings of digital systems, in alignment with the 
issue of corporate interests keeping technologies black-boxed and 
thereby ‘unknowable’.

The multi-day discussions, artworks and tours of this festival will 
explore alternative socio-technical literacies with publics, revealing 
the human species as a causal force with regards to our impact upon 
society, culture and technology. By hosting happenings across Brighton, 
we hope to transport the critical focus of the Sussex Humanities Lab 
outside of the campus and into the city, enabling interdisciplinary 
collaborations between digital, arts and academic communities.

We look forward to seeing you there! http://bit.ly/HauntedRandom
