Apr 14th 2022

For the last 10 years, new media artist, educator, and organizer Nick Briz has produced an urgent and electrifying body of work that uses the tools of our digital age to illuminate its promises and perils. Taking shape through software, websites, video essays, and lecture series, Briz has examined the political and environmental implications of Apple’s culture of continuous upgrades, made an early case against Facebook and a series of computer scripts to help users quit it, and mapped the invisible geography of Wi-Fi networks. In this interactive, performance-based work, he expands on his recent award-winning hypermedia essay howthey.watch/you (2021) to underscore the myriad ways digital fingerprinting and tracking technology is built into our daily lives and to highlight its social, political, and psychic implications.
