Ningbo Library Public Lecture on Hyperreality
14 December 2019
I was invited to give a public lecture at the Ningbo Library in December 2019 and thought about a topic that would most relevant to the experience of today’s society. I eventually settled on the title ‘Our Lives lived on the Map: A Reality based-on Digital and Virtual Worlds’. The talk attracted a full audience at the library auditorium and led to a further hour of Q&A and discussions on how images and digital technologies have brought society into a state of the hyperreal, and further awareness of the effects of social media on all levels of life. Glad to see the impact!
