  • The User Condition #01
    2021-03-23 18:00:00
    Published at 23 maart 2021

    What are the conditions for a computer user to gain agency, defined here as the ability to evade automatisms? What is the user’s horizon of autonomy within a built world made of software programmed by somebody else, when its logic is made inaccessible in the name of convenience?

    In the first event of The User Condition series, Silvio Lorusso will present his micro-interactive essay about computer agency and behavior (https://theusercondition.computer/). This presentation will also be a testing ground for the fresh narrowcast setup currently being developed at Varia. Don't miss!

    Time: 18:00h - 19:00h CET
