You’ve arrived just in time! For those of you who don’t know, this blog is the creative workshop to explore what “intelligence” means in the digital age. More specifically, we want to understand who we are and who we are becoming as we push deeper into the 21st century. For instance, you might have already asked yourself how is technology shaping our identity? This is the type of questioning we will be doing here together through our work!
We believe that art in whatever shape or form it may appear helps convey a story. In turn, these stories help open our eyes to new ideas, new thoughts, and new questions. For instance, did you know that the Internet, which first came into wide spread commercial use in the 1990’s, is now used by over a third of the world’s population.
Imagine: that’s over 2.2 billion people from around the globe collectively pressing their hands into the fresh digital cement.
Now let’s think about that–billions of people, together, sharing and exchanging free information. That’s pretty cool!
But have you ever stopped—I mean turned off all your digital connections—and wondered: if my hand print is permanently molded into the fabric of the web, in what way is the web imprinting on me? More broadly, how is technology shaping my life?
Like the Internet itself, this blog is a collaborative endeavor. So check it out, read and view the creative works inside, and, most importantly, become an active participant: give feedback, like, follow, encourage others to join us, ask questions, voice concerns, shout something out….No really!
We will be accepting submissions that are related to the topic discussed above (note: if you are having trouble getting started, start with some of the questions we’ve discussed together here and let the creative juices start flowing). It can be a short story, a painting, a podcast, a poem, a song, or any other creative piece. Remember: this space is meant to help us explore. That means your work does not need to provide answers to a specific questions (though it could), rather the creative process should help develop and give shape to a particular line of questioning. If your work merits a place in the workshop, we’ll gladly accept it.
SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE EXPLORE WITH US!
Leave a comment and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
Thanks for taking notice of us; we hope to see you again soon!
