NATALIE JEREMIJENKO
Can information technology look different? Now that we can talk to things, what do we say? Can we build networked communities around shared material conditions, rather than shared interests? These are some of the questions that Natalie Jeremijenko will pose in her talk at Doors 6, as she surveys "non-cognitivist models of interaction". Techno-artist Jeremijenko's mission is to reclaim technology from the idealised, abstract concept of 'cyberspace' and apply it to the messy complexities of the real world, often with disquieting results. Her project Stump – a software programme which 'rewards' the user with a single tree ring every time a tree's worth of paper is used, building up to an entire tree stump – comments on our shared illusion that the digital world is somehow clean, the modern office somehow 'paperless'. Neatly using technology to explore social realities, she shot a documentary of Silicon Valley from a remote-controlled spy plane, concealed cameras in teddy bears to record children's expressions and installed a motion detector near Golden Gate Bridge to count the number of suicides (17 in 100 days). Born in Australia, she is director of Yale University Engineering Design Lab and was recently named one of the MIT Technology Review's top 100 young innovators. She has worked in research and development at Xerox Park, the Advanced Computer Graphic Center and the Center for Advanced Technology, New York University. Her current projects include OneTree, which will feature the planting of 2,000 walnut trees in sensor-equipped planters around the San Francisco Bay Area next year. The condition of the growing trees will reflect the region's surprising discrepancies in climatic, environmental and socio-economic conditions – Silicon Valley, OneTree will remind us, is home to a large concentration of toxic waste sites, and has one of the USA's biggest gaps between rich and poor.
