George Orwell’s novel 1984 imagined a future where language was severely constrained and all technology was oriented to state surveillance. In this recorded online discussion, Eryk Salvaggio uses Orwell’s book to explore historic relationships between truth, surveillance and artificial intelligence technology today. Artist, researcher and writer, Salvaggio’s work focuses on insights that emerge at the intersections of science, art, research and technology. His work has been covered in The New York Times and NBC News and has been exhibited at Brown University’s 9/11+1, CalArts International Fluxus Group Show, and the University of Maine’s Code + Creativity 2.0.
