“Power is the ability to do things.” – Doreen Massey

“Power exists through many relations. These can be political, financial, cultural and so on. Power can be coercive when distributed unequally which may manifest itself through injustice and inequality. However, the equal distribution of power is about sharing ideas and can lead to real progress in overcoming many of the issues that the world faces today” (David Flood).

“It doesn’t have to be limited by Orwell’s horrors. The AI is coming into our lives slowly but surely. It is adding something substantially new. Watch our kids talking to their Siris and Alices, this is a brave new world” (Victor X).

NULLA ed. 2 Second part of the video spectacle about being Nulla (Latin for not any) that explores the mindset of being trapped in an image created for immigrants, which deems them “not any” of “us”. Project in three parts by Marek Pluciennik.
