Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter is an illustrated interview with RANDOM INTERNATIONAL, a collaborative art group that explores ideas about communication, technology and what it means to be human. With reference to works including Rain Room and a forthcoming collaboration with Wayne McGregor, the interview reprises themes from the rest of the book, such as dystopia/utopia, connectivity, universality, behaviour and the relationship between human and machine. It reflects on technology’s place in cultural life and in the world more broadly, and asks what is at stake and what might be under threat in the ongoing search for connectedness.
