Join architect Ippolito Pestellini, and Marina Otero, Director of Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut, as they discuss the political, social and physical impact our digital lives have on the spaces around us.

Every second, 2.8 million emails are sent, 30,000 phrases are Googled, 600 updates are tweeted, adding up to approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes of data generated each day. And these figures grow exponentially. While our “datafied” existences are progressively evaporating in bytes and remote connections, the material and spatial consequences of data production and consumption remain largely unanticipated. What is the impact of our increasing reliance on the digital?

In this discussion, architect and OMA partner Ippolito Pestellini is joined by Marina Otero, Director of Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut, to take a closer look at how contemporary life in the digital realm is transforming the political, social and physical character of our environment.

This conversation will be chaired by Ben Vickers a curator, writer, publisher and the chief technology officer at the Serpentine Galleries in London.
