Invisible Landscapes will make visible the often-invisible presence of digital technologies in our lives and everyday environments. The programme will look from the home to the city to review how architecture can respond and engage with emerging contemporary issues, to suggest new ways of being, belonging and living.
Today, digital technologies are often presented as the ultimate solution for cooperating and living in a globalised world, connecting people and places, and making our landscapes and actions more efficient. However, the use of these new technologies also raises questions of privacy, security, sustainability, health and dependency, creating radical transformations within the boundaries between humans and technology. Through three interconnected acts, the Royal Academy will invite practice-based researchers to present new work that addresses the implications of digital technologies on what it means to be human.
