Digital Footprints: Unravelling the Mysteries of Our Digital Identities

Join Our Project to Explore Your Digital World!

Are you a creative person? Curious about your online history and the impact of your digital footprint? Do you want to learn how your choices on social media affect the environment and your future? Then perhaps you will be interested in our FREE workshop on the 22nd of June 2024.

What the workshop Is About?
Online, offline, what is real? We’re on a mission to unravel the mysteries of our digital identities! We’re interested in how people of all ages are on the forefront of this new technological era, dominated by social media environments. Together, we’ll explore what it means to have a digital history of our online selves and explore creative ways to materialise it. We’ll discover how our actions shape the world around us and explore the environmental side of technology.

Who Are We?
We’re a team of creative minds – Katie, Thomas, and Daisy – here to guide you on this exciting journey! Katie loves digital choreography, Thomas is a wizard with immersive tech, and Daisy is all about meaningful content creation.

What Will We Do?
We’ll organise activities where we’ll meet and connect, to mindmap and share thoughts and ideas.
We’ll get creative and explore our digital footprints through creativity, such as movement, dance and technology.
Explore the impact of our data on the cloud and therefore the environment.
Consider what we want to share via social media going forward and why.

Why are we running this workshop?
Katie, Thomas and Daisy have received seed funding by the NCACE Mirco-Commission to begin to explore how their practices can intersect to explore their combined interest in history, personal agency and their shared concerns around cloud storage, and the impact it will have on the environment. This session will be a part of their second day of collaboration.

Why Join?
You will…
Use creativity to explore the groups digital footprint.
Learn about how your digital footprint impacts the environment.
Explore the intersection of technology, art, and society.
Gain valuable insights for your future in the digital age.
Be part of a project that’s all about YOU and your digital identity!

Health and Safety Information:

Motion capture places you in proximity to magnets or components that emit radio waves, which could affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids and defibrillators. If you have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device, do not use these devices without first consulting your doctor or the manufacturer of your medical device. We recommend seeing a doctor before engaging in motion capture if you believe you may be at increased risk from radiation, for example if you are pregnant, elderly, have pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities, or suffer from a heart condition or other serious medical condition.
