Aesthetics of Information Conference

Sat, May 5 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Location: 
Frost Library, 210

What are the aesthetics of information? Fifty years after “the society of the spectacle,” how does information entangle with spectacle—as news, entertainment, propaganda or style? How do ideologies of information inflect forms of sensing and knowing? What are the social, legal and technological consequences of prioritizing information over communication as societal infrastructure? How do characteristics of information direct our attention, dazzle and confuse us?
