Communication and Experience work-in-progress exhibition: MACHINE GURNING

It’s clear we’re malfunctioning. The love affair we’ve had with technology is well beyond the honeymoon period, and we’re stuck in a dreary relationship. While AI and machine learning were meant to take care of menial tasks and free us up for high functioning behaviours, we haven’t got a clear idea of what these new behaviours are. Instead of freeing us up for leisure, these technologies have been most successful in keeping invisible human labour invisible. Bummer. MACHINE GURNING is a work in progress exhibition by MA Design Expanded Practice- Communication & Experience students about the end of the party. Have a look at the online show website by April 25th!
