"Afterglow" is a collaboration between Art Hack Day, LEAP Berlin and transmediale.
As coders we fear the ‘legacy’ system, a piece of old junk we haven’t yet figured out how to throw away. As artists, we’re tempted by prolific outbursts of freshness and novelty; more art of less value. Businesses and government crave more data, more connections, more context. By embracing these impulses without contemplation we perpetuate the technological hype cycle and unintentionally shorten the half-life of our artefacts. Technology has become akin to a natural resource, generating physical and immaterial waste that is appropriated in such diverse contexts as e-garbage dumps, big data businesses and mass surveillance schemes. As such, trash is no longer what is just left behind but is central to our post-digital lives. When digital detritus piles up it decomposes, giving rise to a post-digital afterglow with the potential for new expression and new enterprise. Can we make peace with our excessive data flows and their inevitable obsolescence? Can we find nourishment in waste, overflow and excess? Can the afterglow of perpetual decay illuminate us?

"Making Peace with Data Waste, Overflow, and Excess ... one never knows what will come out of Art Hack Day"
"The special charm of the event is this: to inspire each other and make techno-art among likeminded people, free from institutional constraints"
"The exhibition was a success in that it provoked visitors to reflect upon the post-digital stasis we find ourselves in today"
"This is rigorous, it’s archeological, it’s technopolitical revisionism, and artists shouldn’t be frightened of strategies repurposed from those the fine arts has always known."
