About 'Future Digital Life: A World Without Us?'

This conference programme reflects on the themes of the exhibition A World Without Us and inspired by ArchaeaBot, an artwork by Anna Dumitriu and Alex May, it explores what life might mean in a post climate change, post singularity future. We ask what roles art can play in engaging audiences in environmental issues, the development of new technologies and the societal implications of our decisions.
