[Virtual Talk] Nora Khan

Nora Khan is a critic and writer on emerging issues within digital visual culture and philosophy of emerging technology. Her research focuses on experimental art and music practices that make arguments through software. She specializes in simulation design, AI and intelligent systems, machine vision, automated language and poetry and narrative design for interfaces across time, cultures and political contexts. In examining the cultural, aesthetic and psychological dimensions of technological tools and systems, she tries to map their grounding ideology. She uses emerging trends and spaces as case studies, whether investigating sonic weapons used for crowd control, dissecting therapy apps and online spirituality or mining chat systems in bootleg MMOs. Digital and internet art prove singular in revealing the ways that technology concentrates power and abuse of the vulnerable or offers radical outlets for expression, hybridized thinking and redistribution of resources.
