Sonic Acts presents Exhaust

Helen Pritchard is part of Sonic Acts Exhaust, an online roundtable discussion on oil and data, on 27 February 2021.

How are the twinned commodities of oil and data enmeshed within contemporary human landscapes?

Sonic Acts is proud to present Exhaust, an online roundtable programme produced by resident artist, writer and theorist Maryam Monalisa Gharavi taking place on 27 February 2021. Propelled by the phrase ‘data is the new oil’, coined in 2006 by British mathematician (and customer loyalty card inventor) Clive Humby, Exhaust draws on the insights of eminent academic thinkers and influential practitioners to speculate, critique and make visible the cultural geography of oil and data. Among the roundtable participants are political and environmental anthropologist Omolade Adunbi, media artist and programmer Ryan Kuo, artist and geographer Helen Pritchard and interdisciplinary researcher Andrea Sempértegui.–an-online-roundtable-discussion-on-oil-and-data
