iDMAa Weird Media Conference '22: Infodemic
Recently the iDMAa held a conference and exhibition here in Winona and we were there check out all the weird digital art being presented. Two of the artists that we spoke with, Jennifer Gradecki and Derek Curry, had a video piece in the exhibition titled: Infodemic. Both artists are also assistant professors at Northeastern University in Boston and their piece Infodemic deals with the way that misinformation spreads through todays social and digital media while gaining traction as truth. How do we discern what is truth and what is fiction in todays world? Well, Jennifer and Derek are here to help us figure that out. And to prompt us to think a little deeper when consuming today’s digital media. I’m Bill Stoneberg with Jennifer Gradecki and Derek Curry at the iDMAa Weird Media conference, today on Art Beat.
Original Air Date: 07/05/22.
Art Beat is produced on the campus of Winona State University and is made possible by a grant from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
