Paul Virilio warned in 1997 of the ‘pollution of the life-size’ which was occurring as a result of technologies which ‘reduced to nothing earth’s scale and size’. Unlike other entities which are limited to existence on or at specific scales, humans have developed the capacity not only to imagine life at sub-atomic or cosmic scales, but increasingly to intervene in them directly, whether through nano-engineering, human modifications of climate or cosmological observations. Do our new kinds of expanded existence enhance, or threaten human flourishing? Does the idea of a ‘human scale’ still have meaning?

Join the Digital Futures Institute as we welcome a panel of artists and researchers featured in the Seeking Connection: Living Well with Technology exhibition to explore the Gulliver complex of the movement between macroscopic and microscopic scales, made available by new forms of technological attention.
