Reimagining Digital Infrastructures is a series of workshops funded by InfinIT (Innovationsnetværk for IT). The purpose of these workshops is to consider new ways of creating more ethically inflected digital futures.
Our first workshop is an exploration of ways in which digital infrastructures mediate societal relationships. At this event, we probed the impact of contemporary data practices on a range of societal actors and forms. Through a series of short talks and group discussions, we explored the emergence of a number of new technologies and practices that could, potentially, alter the future of our digital landscape.
The second workshop developed a speculative proposition. At this event, we speculated on the possibility of a particular data-energy platform configuration which we proposed as one way to re-imagine post surveillance-capital futures.
Our guiding frame is what the world would need to look like in order for the proposition to be realizable’ (new institutions, concepts, networks, relations, and so forth).
Our participant are from various backgrounds––including the public sector, the data centre industry, academia, design and innovation clusters, as well as other members of civic society. Each of these participants brings their own particular perspective to bear on how we might work collectively across sectors to intervene in the reshaping of our increasingly more digitalised society.
