This Expo is the culmination of a year spent exploring the repercussions of techno-cultural shifts and flows in society today, and critical examinations of the code by which we live our lives.

About

The MA Interactive Media and Centre for Cultural Studies Digital Culture Unit at Goldsmiths present Everything Flows (9 – 10 July 2015), an Exposition of projects developed by the ten participants on the MA programme throughout the year 2014 – 2015. The Expo is the culmination of a year spent exploring the repercussions of techno-cultural shifts and flows in society today, and critical examinations of the code by which we live our lives.

Everything Flows draws on the Ancient Greek phrase Πάντα ῥεῖ (panta rhei) attributed to Heraclitus’ philosophy of movement and change, and centres the Expo around the slipperiness of modern culture, and the evasive nature of computational systems. It has allowed students to examine the constantly shifting networks of people and cultures that surge through society and provides a platform for students to re-centre and mould new concepts around experimental spaces, de-galvanizing formally accepted means of cultural production.

Reflecting the MA’s methodology, the Expo is experimental in its nature, and critical thought arises from both the process of production as well as the final product. Responses to the curatorial theme range from the literal to more figurative and abstract, computational to physical and participatory. Projects shown blur art methodologies with the more formal processes of computational and cultural theory, and seek to critically examine the world around us through the practice of making, doing and creating.
