Software for Artists Day (S4AD) is a conference that aims to connect communities of artists, technologists, and activists through talks demonstrating expressive and often contentious relationships with emerging technologies. S4AD is a two-day gathering featuring presentations by Eva Papamargarita, Ann Haeyoung, LaTurbo Avedon, Francis Tseng, Caroline Sinders, Dan Taeyoung and Janus Rose — individuals responding to technological assimilation and ubiquity in ways that underscore it’s duality as a tool for repression and as a space for self-realization. The program will end with sound performances by Sarah Viviana Valdez. A public soapbox session will allow attendees to ask questions or highlight ongoing projects in order to find collaborators and build community. Collectively, we will seek to co-opt, critique, and disassemble a burgeoning digital colonialism through language, sound, and creative projects.
