The NC State University Libraries, with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will host a virtual mini-symposium about surveillance architecture, the attention economy, and data privacy in online spaces. The symposium will be the conclusion of a creative residency with Sneakaway Studio’s Joelle Dietrick and Owen Mundy, where they adapted their browser-based game Tally Saves the Internet into an experiential work for display. The symposium will feature a panel discussion with:
- Joelle Dietrick, artist and Assistant Professor of Art and Digital Studies at Davidson College
- Owen Mundy, artist, designer, programmer and Associate Professor of Practice in Digital Studies at Davidson College
- Nick Merrill – Director of Daylight Security Research Lab at UC Berkeley
- Lauren Klein – Associate Professor in the Departments of English and Quantitative Theory and Methods at Emory University, director of the Digital Humanities Lab, and co-author of Data Feminism
Following the panel will be an unveiling of the visualization work with live gameplay and commentary from the designers, Dietrick and Mundy, and the libraries support team.
