Deep Water Web is a poetic essayistic meditation around phenomena straddling contemporary and historical geopolitical contexts of the UK and Australia; a continuous hyperlandscape, an environment composed from local manifestations of global ecologies, between points in the northern and southern hemispheres in the UK and Australia, online and in the physical space of Furtherfield Gallery.

The telluro-geo-psycho-modulator is the latest experiment in a series of playful explorations and elaborations of a general thesis extracted from Michael Persinger's work, that our brain states are modulated by the interference patterns created by our immersion in natural weak geomagnetic fields, and that such patterns cause the feeling of anomalous experiences including those of ghosts or god.

Is it really OK for corporations to compile and sell personal profiles so intimate that they know more about us than our loved ones do? Is 'smart' economy an all-round bad idea purely to be defended against or is there the possibility of 'smart' technology and smart systems co-designed by and for women themselves and a respectful way to manage 'big data'?
This two-day event by Fossbox will explore these questions around surveillance, gender and society in a practical privacy workshop followed by a day of discussion, making and performance.
