I am a doctoral student at the University of the Arts in the very final phase and avid observer of the present unfolding.
Which side are you on?
What is your interest in high & low?
I have always been interested in the contrast and contact of high and low – Perry Rhodan read by Dietmar Dath; understanding industrial music by interviewing a fictitious musician; or recently thinking about the allegedly meritocratic culture colliding with right-wing voting behaviour. As to High and Low in digital culture, the easiest and still unanswered question is: Why is there still no algorithm that recommends artifacts that let me acquire taste? Where is the long tail when you need it?
