See like a camera / listen like a microphone / track like a satellite. Big beautiful data is everywhere. The sound is constant. The image bank immense. The network sends and receives everything. We remix our environment by just being present in it. We capture, post, follow, share and archive. Data becomes us. This new aesthetic of machine ambiance is at once an embodiment of our private present selves but also an ambient beautification of what lies in our wake. The machine sees the machine knows but the mechanics are invisible. How will artists, designers and film makers depict A.I. in the crowded vision streams of the future? The notion of the liquid electric is embedded in our popular cultural fictions and scientific explorations. It operates at the foundation of our interpretation of the farthermost reaches of space and the inner most structures of matter. But it also colors the wider vistas of our future networked selves and the imaginings of content designers and artists alike.
