Trevor Paglen

3 p.m. Panel Discussion "Gathering Dust" / Atwood Theatre

Our contemporary world captures information and data at an alarming rate. People making an effort to preserve the events of lives lived is not new. What is new is how and for what reasons information and data are captured and preserved. Invariably, when a large net is cast, details get lost or are knowingly omitted. What is left out? Who decides how history unfolds?
