Examining technology as a top-down, disciplinary tool that regiments space, time, and the relations among people and activities can alert us to forms of control and power we often overlook. Today, such tools are created not only by governments but also by multinational corporations that leverage the potential of managed information systems and big data. The works included in Creating Knowledge and Control reveal ways that artists and citizens have grappled with what to make of these technologies, their insights and consequences, and the changes to the landscape that result from their use.
