Understanding the Digital World series we have formed under the roof of Atlas Publishing Lab is to talk to people working and producing in different fields on today's knowledge, discussions and problems. We aim to make room for thinking in this digital, accelerating, and unfocused world where we feel like we are always lagging in something. By thinking with the people we interview in this series, we form a series of dialogues about changing habits, technologies, societies, power relations, relations of production, and changing humans.
