This chapter brings the folded cosmos into dialogue with contemporary theories of surveillant information capitalism. Marks suggests an “only moderately paranoid” rejoinder to the darker theorizations of information's grip, especially where information-images are concerned. This relatively cheerful view is, however, moderated in turn by an analysis of the unsustainable energy consumption of information and communication technologies. The chapter then turns to media arts of the fold and presents a protagonist for the media of our coming collapse informatics: small-file movies. Other artworks include Jonathan Monaghan's digital animation Den of Wolves and Jawa El Khash's virtual-reality work The Upper Side of the Sky.
