Hej Dennis, vielleicht interessant für DM Studenten. Beste Grüße Vincent

AN ETHNOGRAPHY ON STRATEGIES OF DIGITAL FRICTION Reality is organized in discrete units. We are trapped in filter bubbles,

surrounded by comfort and uniformity – “digital islands of isolation
that are drifting further apart each day.” In other words, seamless
surfaces are stacked on top of each other, engaging us in the cosy
architecture of Gated Communities. Personalized interfaces endure into
homophily – we are encircled with more of the same. Comfortable
exclusions of the Other touch upon an easy space of segregation.
warehouse is a curatorial project researching into artistic and
scientific strategies of digital friction. The aim is to research into
a condition of homophily to provide solutions: warehouse configures
ethnographic categories [pray], [soft-fiction], [entropy], [adobe],
[home], [stranded]: a geometry to map a new normal; a topography for
overcoming segregation. How may friction look like in times of total
seamlessness? For 5 month warehouse will go on an ethnographic field
trip by collecting, archiving and distributing scientific and artistic
data around modes of digital resistance. We will seek models of
friction, local utopias and distributive infiltrations.



warehouse announces three calls for a »Digital Residency«. For each
call two persons or collectives will be selected for a four-week
Digital Residency which is rewarded with 650 € to support the
realization of a project during this time. In August there will be a
free workshop taking place for all the participants. The Residents are
asked to take part in the Jury for the next residency. Applicants must
not exceed the age of 30 years.

Format Only digital formats are accepted: websites, videos, software, presentation slides, videos, writing, social media projects

(on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc.).
