Data Fever: The Environmental Impacts of Data Centers
by Melsida Babayan, Siranuysh Martirosyan, Mahdi Panjehpour
Lecturer: Dr. Marija Maric
Data Fever is a research media project dedicated to the exploration of data centers and their impacts on our environment. To better understand the role of data centers in society today, the project starts with the history of our relationship with data, focusing further on the environmental impacts that data centers have.
In this research, the central stage is given to the famous blogger Lorena, who is urging for the case of a "data diet," and critical analysis of the relationship between online activism, consumption of data, and environmental agenda behind these activities.
