InterAccess Brunch Series 01—Laborers of Love
Stephanie Rothenberg (via Berlin) with Greg J. Smith
$15 each or all three for $30
Using the lens of affective capitalism and how social media platforms manipulate our feelings, Stephanie Rothenberg takes us on a tour through her augmented reality projects, including a telematic garden, a platform outsourcing sexual fantasies, and a Second Life personal trainer investigating invisible labour and e-waste in the global game industry. Greg J. Smith will join her in a discussion about using virtual spaces for understanding relationships to technology that may be otherwise hidden in the present, towards predicting possibilities for mapping out alternative futures.
