We are pleased to announce that all recordings of the interventions that took place during the Digital Earth Symposium are now available to stream on Ashkal Alwan's archive platform. With: Haig Aivazian, Hicham Awad, Benjamin H. Bratton, Diann Bauer, Heather Davis, Cheng Guo, Geocinema, Monika Halkort, Helene Kazan, Jessika Khazrik Suhail Malik, Reza Negarestani, Bahar Noorizadeh, and Adham Selim. --- Digital Earth is a two-day symposium focusing on the materiality and immateriality of the digital reality we live in – from data centers to software interfaces, and rare minerals to financial derivatives. Earth is dug, excavated, and ripped apart to extract the fundamental materials that keep the computational machine running – oil, coltan, sand, rubber, lithium form the material basis on which digital reality is built. At the same time, digital technologies enable new modes of circulation and extraction of information and data. The event took place on April 19-20 in Beirut, and was organized by Ashkal Alwan and Digital Earth, with the generous support of Hivos.
