Myth, magic and monsters is often used to explain the complex role of technology in our life. The Impakt Festival explores the relationship between technology, religion, magic and the occult with a programme full of international speakers, artists, thinkers and makers. Which metaphors do we use to explain what Facebook does with your data, how smart is a Smart TV really, and what does this all mean for us?
