Julie Freeman’s Allusive Protocols to be unveiled for Forecast

Posted on 18.05.2023

One of two new artist commissions exploring stories about the future of energy that will be premiered at Forecast, City Hall, Friday 19th May 2023.

Artist Julie Freeman has been commissioned by Data as Culture at the ODI (@open_data_institute) with the support of Invisible Dust to work with ODI researchers on the Power and Diplomacy project to create ‘Allusive Protocols’ a new kinetic data-driven work of art. ‘Allusive Protocols’ responds to the contradictions and relationships inherent to the Power and Diplomacy project. It considers how the power behind all modern infrastructure resides in functioning networked connections, where continually growing complexity moves beyond human comprehension. The project is inspired by the fragility of networked connectivity and how it is both vulnerable and open to influence.
