Julie Freeman – Allusive Protocols

Artist Julie Freeman was commissioned by Data as Culture at the Open Data Institute (ODI) to create ‘Allusive Protocols’; a new kinetic data-driven work of art. With the support of Invisible Dust, Julie worked with ODI researchers, responding to the contradictions and relationships inherent to the Power and Diplomacy project. ‘Allusive Protocols’ 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.

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