In her essay ‘Too Much World: Is the Internet Dead?’, artist Hito Steyeri asks: “What happened to the Internet after it stopped being a possibility?”

About

This year's exhibition aims to address that question and to explore the contrasting notions of the Internet as both a misguided and hijacked medium, and a collaborative and creative space.

'The Promise of the Internet' will explore duality within the online world: the positive and the negative, the ying and the yang. The exhibition will look at reclaiming the internet, embracing emerging technologies and encouraging connectivity for the common good. It will also align with this year’s launch of the Internet Social Forum by the Global Civil Society, which calls for us to “occupy the Internet” and to “bring together and articulate bottom-up perspectives on the 'Internet we want'”.

The programme of events will run from 10th - 24th October 2015 and will also launch DINA, a brand new digital arts venue in the centre of Sheffield. Alongside the exhibition there'll be a series of workshops and performances we'll announce over the next few weeks, with full details on this website.
