Communiqué 7: Spring 2011

“The conference will serve as an international platform from which the outcomes of VF 94/95/96 will be contextualised. It will be an essential follow up and review of the very important cutting edge work that the speakers at the original event pioneered. The themes discussed included: chaos theory, geopolitics, feminism, nanotechnology, cyberpunk fiction, machine music, net security, military strategy, plastic surgery, hacking, bio-computation, cognition, cryptography & capitalism. Many of these topics are still poignant today with perhaps the addition of genetics, bio-engineering, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, bio-ethics and social media.”
