We@UIC: Clare Lyster, States of Entanglement
Wednesday, October 12, 1pm
1100 A+DS

In this edition of We@UIC, Professor Clare Lyster discusses the book States of Entanglement: Data in the Irish Landscape (Actar, 2021). Produced with the research collective ANNEX, the publication accompanied the Irish pavilion at the 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale.

From the publisher’s website:

As our everyday lives become increasingly entangled with data technologies, the book addresses the utopian fantasy that surrounds the Cloud, as transcending physical presence or resourcing. By bringing the physical infrastructure around data, and its impact on the environment under the spotlight, it hopes to reframe how we understand data production and highlight the myth that information technologies are hidden and without major material manifestations on the landscape.

The event is free and open to all.

We@UIC—an evolution of Wednesday|Episodes—is a series of intimate, informal afternoon meetings where faculty and students share projects and experiences generated within and throughout the school.
