In 2016, which seems very far away, the Manifest of the Hostile Words was born. In point 1 it states “Virtual is real”. This principle implies that virtual has taken the form of a real world, new and newly born, populated by people and groups that interact or oppose each other, building relationships or wrecking them. A world made of “bubbles” blown by algorythms, overloaded with information, true and false, in which words echo and are stones becoming boulders.
On this Tangible Day, we will be guided by Maura Gancitano through the worst behaviors and manifestations that inhabit the web and we will reason on the principles that can guide us to find solutions that can make it more habitabile and ecological. Hovering between virtual and real, Arianna Ciccarelli and Anna Sabella of Artdisk will help us read and interpret the meanings behind the advertising communication, offline and online, to learn how to listen to words and see images outside our bubble.
Dwelling in the future: diversity and inclusion between the potential and the risks of the web
The web offers great potential to anyone, but more often it causes terrible phoenomena, such as online hatred and violence, which increasingly involve young users in particular.
The web emphasises all our unconscious impulses, so we need to ask ourselves questions in order to achieve a more responsible use of this medium and tackle the problem of the consequences of one’s behaviour.
We need to increase our awareness of the deceptive use of emotions by those willing to stir up feelings against any minority, for the sole purpose of asserting their power, in fact depriving of freedom and dignity both those who are discriminated against and those who discriminate.
The solution is not to disconnect, but to use the virtual territory to really dialogue, to share culture, information and authentic sociality.
Inclusive communication in advertising and in digital mass information: the importance of a new language for a greater attention to “diversity”, for an improvement of human relations and professional results.
