Hello on Spectre list

Today is the 2nd day of the Global Control, RIXC festival and Open  
Fields 2018 conference. As this event is marking Latvia's 100 year's  
anniversary, our intent was to highlight some hot topics.

On the opening day we had the lecture by Bruce Sterling on Ukraine's  
“multicolor revolution”, and five years of armed struggle online and  
on the ground”. We were discussing the hybrid war and its frontlines –  
since I have been always thinking that we have the main one here in  
Baltics, yet Bruce Sterling argued that the frontline is actually  
everywhere on this globe. More than that, above all the government  
interests, there are the oligarchs who have the main impact. Perhaps,  
this explains the case in Latvia – this year Riga is hosting the first  
Riga Biennial with 100 artworks, and 6 million EUR budget; this money  
is not national money, of course, but by oligarchs (banks, Russia,  
this is unclear); just to compare, from the national money (Latvia  
Anniversary support program) the Global Control conference was granted  
with 15 thousand EUR.

So, the discussions on who controls the world in the “algorithmic  
society”, for what purpose the private data can be used, and whether  
or not we are in under the “global control”? May be not yet, as AI has  
turned out to be fragile and neural networks sometimes do make wrong  
recognitions – accordingly to Mauro Martino, director of IBM Visual AI  
Lab, who was also the keynote lecturer in our Global Control  
Conference, which is continuing still today, and will end this  
afternoon with all of the participating going with the bus to Kemeri  
bog for a swamp sound walk.

Please find below the full program of this year's festival, as we have  
also other amazing keynotes, and hosting more then 80 international  
participants both academics and independent artists and theorists, as  
well as about 60 more master and doctoral students from different  
universities are attending and participating.

Best regards,

Open Fields 2018: Global Control
The 3rd International Conference on Art, Science, Technologies and Humanities
September 13-15, 2018, Riga, Latvia
The National Library of Latvia


Marking the centennial anniversary of independent Latvia and Baltic  
countries, this year's festival takes up the call by becoming a space  
for artistic interventions and hot-button conversations addressing the  
complexity and future of digital society, especially with regards to  
ubiquitous surveillance and data privacy.

The anniversary festival conference titled GLOBAL CONTROL is taking  
place in the framework of RICK CHANGE, Creative  Europe's network  
project. It investigates the globally and locally urgent issues of our  
digital society from three main perspectives:

* Hybrid Wars and Post-Truth
The first, “hybrid war”, is particularly relevant in the context of  
the Baltic states independence celebration year, when continuous  
“post-truth” propaganda in media and tensions around military training  
in this region are on the rise. We also discuss the issue of “fake  
news”, its consequences on global politics, and its impacts on  
individual nations.

* Surveillance and Immersive Technologies
The second perspective deals with “surveillance and immersion”; as we  
all are under surveillance, we need to become aware of both the  
enormous scale of “watching”, as well as the potential “depth” of  
watching due to the development of immersive technologies.

* The Next Big Privacy
The third, concerns “the next big privacy” issue, discussed from a  
“data politics” perspectives – What is the future of our social media?  
How can we feel safe about our data we publish on the internet today?,  
and How to maintain trust with the next generation?

These are just a few of critical topics that are discussed and  
explored in this year’s RIXC Festival through a series of public  
keynotes, “Open Fields 2018” conference, artistic interventions,  
thematic panel presentations, open public discussions, performances,  
and workshops. The featured event is the the Opening of the Global  
Control and Censorship exhibition that aims to expand the public  
debate about ever-present surveillance and censorship methods.

The main festival events take place from September 13 – 15, 2018, in  
the National Library of Latvia. The broad festival program will be  
closing with the Swamp Radio and Acoustic Surveillance program on  
September 15, 2018, featuring artistic interventions and immersive  
sound installations in Kemeri Bog.

The exhibition Global Control and Censorship is open until October 21,  
2018, in the Exhibition Hall of the National Library of Latvia.

Bruce STERLING. Multicolor Revolutions

Bruce Sterling describes media events in the Ukraine after the  
Euromaidan, the Novorussia secession and five years of armed struggle  
online and on the ground. This presentation includes a lot of images  
from his private collection of separatist and loyalist Ukrainian  
propaganda, along with some papers that Bruce discovered in the  
Yanukovych Palace while sleeping in the abandoned secret-service  
headquarters of Ukraine’s former President. Since the Euromaidan  
“Color Revolution,” this kind of covert media struggle has been  
professionalized by the likes of “Fancy Bear,” so it’s of interest to  
see how “computational propaganda” looked back when it was much more  
amateurish, awkward, comical and confused. Since Bruce is a science  
fiction writer rather than an intelligence operative, this speech will  
end with a few mild speculations about how the new media culture of  
armed struggle and frozen conflicts may go in the near future.

Keywords: media, propaganda, virality, Russia, Ukraine revolution, secession

Bruce Sterling is a novelist and journalist. While acting as  
“Visionary in Residence” at Art Center College of Design in 2008, he  
wrote “Shaping Things,” one of the first books about the Internet of  
Things. In 2008 he was the curator of the Share Festival in Turin, on  
the theme of Italian digital manufacturing. He was one of the original  
columnists for Make magazine and wrote the cover story for the first  
issue of WIRED. His most recent book is a work of fiction titled  
“Pirate Utopia”. Bruce Sterling lives in Turin, Belgrade and Austin.

Dr. Bernhard SEREXHE. Total control: towards a new humanity

Whereas not so long ago digital forms of communication were seen as  
the hope for new forms of democratic participation, they have recently  
been converted and perverted into ideal door openers for the perfect  
control of billions of people. Being at the mercy of overwhelmingly  
powerful authorities of control and censorship has become the conditio  
humana, the basic condition of our culture and society. We have become  
accustomed to this situation, just as we are not deterred by the  
myriads of video cameras on the way to work or on our way back home.  
And this resignation paired with our love of ease and selfishness  
invites a new totalitarianism to install a new society with a  
pre-programmed divide between an elite of hyper-agile information  
users and a broad mass of interactive consumers restlessly zapping  
futile audio-visual products and services offered at dumping prices in  
order to control all of their practices and preferences. This  
re-coding of humanity will result in the worst of all  
totalitarianisms, that of a brave new world, in which everyone will be  
content, well-informed of everything he or she should know in order to  
play a useful role in society, but remaining ignorant of everything,  
which does not need to be known and consequently permanently amused to  
the point of complete satiety.

Keywords: control, surveillance, social profiling, social credit  
system, totalitarianism

Jens HAUSER. Ungreening Greenness

Are we in control of ‘green’? The entanglement between symbolic green,  
ontological greenness and performative greening poses challenges  
across disciplines: ‘green’, symbolically associated with the  
‘natural’ and employed to hyper-compensate for what humans have lost,  
needs to be addressed as the most anthropocentric of all colours, in  
its inherent ambiguity between alleged naturalness and artificiality.  
There has been little reflection upon greenness’ migration across  
different knowledge cultures, meanwhile we are green-washing  
greenhouse effects away. Far from having universal meaning, ‘green’  
marks a dramatic knowledge gap prone to systematic misunderstandings:  
Engineers brand ‘green technologies’ as ecologically benign, while  
climate researchers point to the ‘greening of the earth’ itself as the  
alarming effect of anthropogenic CO2 emissions.
A morbid odour clings to the charm of the pervasive trope of greening  
everything, from mundane ‘green burials’ to transcendental ‘greening  
the gods’, and even ‘green warfare.’ Despite its broadly positive  
connotations, ‘green’ incrementally serves the uncritical desire of  
fetishistic and techno-romantic naturalization in order to  
metaphorically hyper-compensate for indeed material systemic bio and  
necropolitics consisting of the increasing technical manipulation and  
exploitation of living systems, ecologies, and the biosphere at large  
– the generalized, and very ‘un-green’ mechanization, automation,  
standardization, interchangeability, and hierarchization of parts.

Keywords: greenness, postanthropocentrism, media studies,  
transdisciplinarity, necro/biopolitics

Jens Hauser is a Copenhagen and Paris based media studies scholar and  
art curator focusing on the interactions between art and technology.  
He holds a dual research position at both the Department of Arts and

Copenhagen, and leads the (OU)VERT research initiative for Greenness  
Studies. He is also a distinguished affiliated faculty member of the  
Department of Art, Art History and Design at Michigan State  
University, where he co-directs the BRIDGE artist in residency  
program. Hauser is also the chair of the European Society for  
Literature, Science and the Arts’ annual 2018 conference in Copenhagen.

Jasmina TESANOVIC. Internet of Women Things, IoWT

It was my idea to have an open-source connected home of the future. My  
scheme was accepted by brave new geeks, brilliant people, but mostly  
male. They gave the house, “Casa Jasmina,” my name: I am grateful for  
that, but the house is not altogether comfortable. People are diverse  
and live in bubbles of limited human understanding. Men and women,  
poets, philosophers, musicians, architects, designers, engineers — we  
might try to classify them as idealists or realists — the people in  
cloud bubbles, or the people in ground bubbles.
Now, a project like Casa Jasmina — is it a hands-on, practical,  
maker’s project struggling up toward ideals, or is it a set of ideals  
searching for grounded realities that might prove that high concepts  
are possible? Is it a house for the cloud-bubble people, those who  
invent their own cloud-world before crashing into the ground (or at  
least landing on it, now and then, to pick up supplies)? Or is a  
grounded launch-pad for aspiration, where the ground-bubble people  
assemble tools to reach for the sky?

Keywords: Internet of Women Things, IoWT, critical thinking, design  
fiction, Casa Jasmina

Jasmina Tesanovic is a Feminist and political activist (Women in  
Black; CodePink) and a writer, journalist, musician, translator and  
film director. In 1978 she promoted the first feminist conference in  
Eastern Europe, “Drug-ca Zena” (Belgrade). With Slavica Stojanovic she  
designs and creates the first feminist publishing house in the  
Balkans, “Feminist 94?, lasting for 10 years. She is the author of  
“Diary of a Political Idiot”, translated in 12 languages: a real time  
war diary written during the 1999 conflict in Kosovo. Since then she  
has been publishing her works on blogs and other media, always  
connected to the Internet.

Mauro MARTINO. Fragile AI: Visualizing perturbations of Artificial  
Neural Network

After the publication of the paper “Intriguing properties of neural  
networks” in 2013 by Christian Szegedy, we have discovered that  
learning algorithms are vulnerable. Input data visually  
indistinguishable from “normal” input are specifically tuned so as to  
fool or mislead the machine learning system.
How is it possible that neural network-based image classifiers  
exchange the photo of a panda for a gibbon, and do it with a very high  
level of confidence, almost 100%? We are faced with a more fragile AI  
than we thought.
At the talk we will observe what happens during an attack on neural  
networks, we will enter into the layers and the neurons and filters of  
dozens of Deep Neural Network models, to discover their beauty and  

Keywords: artificial intelligence, neural network, visualization, deep  
learning, adversarial examples

Dr. Ellen PEARLMAN. Biometrics and Total Control

Though big data and fake news make the most headlines, the future of  
real global control will develop around a ‘quantified self’ including  
a deep dive into biometrics. Areas include the honing of facial  
recognition and eye scanning algorithms, genetic profiling, immersive  
experiences profiling (i.e. like Facebook data gathering, except  
around experiential preferences in AR/VR/MR), brain computer  
interfaces and the semantic/dream brain, and artificial intelligence  
algorithmic selectivity. The use and abuse of this information will be  
subject to nation state dictates ranging from socially conscious  
societies to rogue dictatorships. Using the arts practices developed  
in the ThoughtWorks Arts Residency and Art-A-Hack(TM), based in New  
York City, this presentation examines how arts practice can shed light  
on the implications of this coming storm.

Keywords: biometrics, arts practice, algorithms, AI, Machine learning,  
big data
