This panel involves three visual presentations which explore the economic, political, cultural, and social transformations brought about by the rise of digital technologies, particularly in the media and telecommunications. The presentations question how computational tools shape and prioritise certain knowledge, practices, and aesthetics, the fast growth of digital along with its disruptions and challenges, and the ownership of the internet infrastructure.
