Presentation: Spectre – Welcome to the Altar of Dataism

British artist Bill Posters (aka Barnaby Francis) and American researcher Daniel C. Howe open space for interrogating computational forms of propaganda and what they call the wider digital influence industry with a presentation of their project Spectre. Inviting audiences to “pray at the altar of dataism,” this interactive installation premiered at the Sheffield Doc/Fest 2019 Alternate Realities exhibition, and has attracted considerable media attention ever since, contributing to a debate on the privacy policies of the big social media companies.

Spectre was the winner of Sheffield Doc/Fest’s Alternate Realities 2019 Commission, supported by Arts Council England, Site Gallery, the British Council, and MUTEK.
