(un)doing… 1st year projects, Master in Communication Design, 2020/21
(un)doing… presents projects from the 1st year of the master’s degree in Communication Design (Belas-Artes, ULisboa) that address and seek to deconstruct the effects of computational technologies and the internet in contemporary culture.
The projects reflect the post-digital and post-internet era, characterized by the ubiquity of computational infrastructures and the blurring of boundaries between online and offline modes of existence. They comment on the sovereignty of data under the model of surveillance capitalism and question how artificial intelligence systems incorporate or reinforce cultural prejudices or assumptions on social exclusion. They also highlight the volatility of knowledge under the impact of the internet, according to paradigms of uncertainty, disinformation, and manipulation.
Following post-production and remediation processes, the projects gathered on this collective website address current ways of communicating, preserving, and disseminating cultural production. They creatively explore the confluence of media to reflect on the ways in which digital technologies shape our perception and experience of reality.
