INFRA_SPECTION

In 2014 Jay Co-Curated the 2014-15 residency cycle at The White Building, London.

Thematic: #stacktivism is a term that attempts to give form to a critical conversation and line of enquiry around infrastructures and the relationship we have to them. As the digital divide and post‐internet discourses lose traction and diversify, artists and creative technologists are faced with a new set of trending critical dialogues in the face of the morphing technological landscape.

The INFRA_SPECTION residency acknowledges this shift, and the participating artists were invited to enter into a dialogue with the rapidly evolving perspectives of #stacktivism as a catalyst for their practice.
The residencies generated a programme of events and critical debate around how creative practices are positioned within our contemporary convergence culture. INFRA_SPECTION also raised questions about the terms of engagement artists and creative technologists are working with in their techno-political landscape and beyond.
