Subtle Technologies: We ++DECOLONIZING (≠ RECONCILING) Science, Tech, Indigenous Relations


SUBTLE TECHNOLOGIES is pleased to present WE++, a festival inquiring into cultural heritage, ancestry, hybrid identities, and virtual environments. We++ consists of three interrelated events – a panel conversation, an interactive architectural scale new media installation and a digitally oriented workshop series. The program playfully examines virtual place-making in game interfaces and genetic databases as a means for decolonization and reconciliation through disparate modes of (re)presentation.
