“Data is the Vaccine", says Volan, a company utilizing technologies –from drones, to smart buildings to bracelets – in order to assist humanity to recover. 'Technologies of Hope: 100 Responses to the Pandemic' is an artistic and research project that takes viewers on a journey through the world of one hundred such companies. Paying attention to their visual and verbal language, it sheds light on the costs of proposed ‘back to normal’ scenarios and a ‘no touch future’. The project examines how the specific technologies being promoted observe, screen, enforce and attempt to modify humans and the spaces they move within, mediating the relationship between body, architecture and geography. Taking into consideration how techno-solutionism based on machine learning becomes the new modus operandi, this interactive piece explores how freedoms are threatened in the name of safety. What can we learn about the current collective neurosis from the technologies that we accept into our lives? When have we gone too far, and how far are we willing to go? Is it possible that in our efforts to contain the virus, we succeeded instead in containing the host?

Technologies of Hope: 100 Responses to the Pandemic

Stephanie Hankey and Marek Tuszynski

Stephanie Hankey and Marek Tuszynski investigate the impact of technology on society and its relationship to social, environmental, and political issues. They have been working together producing creative interventions for the past 20 years – exhibitions, art works, films, events, workshops and writing – using the best way possible to tell stories, influence attitudes and find new ways of seeing. They are the co-founders of Tactical Tech, the co-curators of Nervous Systems: Quantified Life and the Social Question and the award winning touring exhibition, The Glass Room, a museum and street-based art installation presented in Berlin, London, New York, and San Francisco, now transformed into a successful pop-up touring exhibition.
