As someone who shops online regularly, I began to notice the prominent growth of conscious and ethical fashion. We, the consumers, are always aware that our lives involve systems that we don’t fully understand yet it was only until recently that we started putting more effort into understanding how our essentials came into our home.
I really enjoyed Leigh Alexander’s short story. It was captivating and beautifully executed the dynamic relationship between human and technology.
The Sandra podcast reminded me of last class’ discussion on how to define a “conversation”.
Voice recognition technology is such an interesting tool for performance. I imagine using it to make a dating app inspired website where you find your “type” through voicing out keywords.
I have developed an interest in exploring modern romance via my art practice over the past year. After listening to Helpful Mom Voices, I was intrigued by the idea of seeing voice as the breath of souls that can elevate a creature to a higher order or being. I wondered how building relationships with strangers can be alternated if voice technology were incorporated in dating apps. Strange Connection is a prototype of my interpretation (a work in progress).
