Expedition meetup #7

20 March 2020 - 12.00-13.30

20 March 2020 – 12:00-13:30

Imagine a place that’s a lot like Earth…we’ll call it planet B

During the monthly planet B meetings, scientists, artists and citizens are invited to have a dialogue about the social and ecological challenges of our time.

The starting point of each meeting is the artistic work in progress of artists whose research is focused on these challenges. Meetup #7 will take place on Thursday 19 March, at our outpost at Amsterdam Science Park.

Our guest during this meetup is artistic researcher Tomo Kihara. He will present his project “Swap the Curators behind the Tube”: a browser extension that allows you to swap your Youtube recommendations with that of other people. Users will also get access to the YouTube recommendations of different personas. How does YouTube for example look through the eyes of a conspiracist? With this project, Tomo was one of the winners of Mozilla’s Creative Media Awards.
