RCA ADS 8:
WIP SHOW


EXHIBITION//2019


Every second, 2.8 million emails are sent, 30,000 phrases are Googled and 600 updates are tweeted. The amount of data uploaded to the Internet in a single second is a staggering 24,000 gigabytes. Propelled by the Internet of Things, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created each day. This figure grows exponentially. In fact, 90 per cent of the world’s data was generated over the last two years. Algorithmic intelligence regulates this trans-border flow of information through sophisticated tracking and surveillance systems, generating immense amounts of real-time digital personhood, identities and architectures. 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. ADS8: Data Matter, Digital Networks, Data Centres & Post Human Institutions
In 2018–19, ADS8 is looking at the architecture of data centres as the fundamental component of today’s political,  cultural, socio-economic landscapes. A new form of architecture for data and machines – one almost liberated from human needs and entirely shaped by technological rationales – data centres are the testing ground for alternative  models of post-human institutions.
