5D | The Future of Immersive Design, a global community of creative thinkers, presents the “Algorithmic Anthologies” panel at FITC San Francisco, a design & technology conference, on August 18th.
Curated by Tali Krakowsky, Founder of Apologue, the panel will examine the impact of infinite digital data and processing power on narrative and design thinking, and the possibilities that lie ahead of us.
“Algorithmic Anthologies”: In the 20th Century, libraries and ink were the primary expression of the imagination in the form of storytelling. Today ink has been replaced by the kinetic abilities of the digital, the sentence has been replaced with the algorithm, and the library with a database. Nothing, however, replaces the imagination, and our 21st Century anthologies are free to roam our entire physical and virtual world.
The expert panel features:
Tali Krakowsky, Founder, Apologue
Jeremy Clark, Senior Experience Design Manager, Adobe
Ben Fry, Co-Founder, Processing Project
Jeremy Thorp, Digital Artist, Designer & Educator
Theodore Watson, Co-Founder, openFrameworks, Digital Artist
