Adventure in a Digital Future

with Laurence Scott and Nick Harkaway

Arts & Culture

How do we maintain a sense of reality in an age of alternative truths, online personas, the all-seeing eye of surveillance and a 24hr, ever hysterical news cycle. Laurence Scott’s Picnic Comma Lightning is an innovative examination of the key ethical, political and neurological forces contouring our inner selves. Nick Harkaway’s Gnomon is an intricately constructed sci-fi thriller set in a near future Britain where every action is seen, every word is recorded and the System has access to thoughts and memories. Together they discuss the nature of identity in the new digital reality of the twenty first century.
