LIVING ROOM LIGHT EXCHANGE NEW YORK
Caroline Sinders, Eva & Franco Mattes, + Francis Tseng & Fei LiU
TUESDAY, October 10TH, 7PM
Caroline Sinders is a machine learning designer/user researcher, artist, and digital anthropologist obsessed with language, culture and images. For the past few years, she has been focusing on the intersections of natural language processing, artificial intelligence, abuse, and online harassment. She has spent the past two years studying online harassment and political activism on social media.
Eva & Franco Mattes are an artist duo originally from Italy, working in New York. Their medium is a combination of Internet, video and installation, exposing all aspects of the digital life – the embarrassing, the narcissistic, the fearless, the gross, the voyeuristic, the insipid, the heartless, and the just plain stupid – revealing the underbelly of our hyper-connected lives.
Francis Tseng & Fei Liu make up Public Science, a loose interdisciplinary conglomeration that uses storytelling, games, and satire to reconfigure new technologies for social and political purposes. Their projects include an interactive installation simulating quantified-self Taylorism, a video game demonstrating the absurdity of disruptive start-up logic, and tools for speculating alternative economies.
The Living Room Light Exchange NY #lrlxny is organized by Sarah Burke, Jason Huff, and Nicholas O'Brien.
Support for the Living Room Light Exchange is generously provided by Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Grant Program. The Exchange is also fiscally sponsored by the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.
