I’m that angel

@ 7pm

I’m that angel is a cycle of writings and performances that explore the conditions of how we work on and against the computer, narrated from the perspective of a “content farmer”: an emergent type of online journalist contracted to generate articles based on words peaking in Google Trends. The performance will take place as two readings inside the Hootsuite Labs offices, a physical infrastructure that addresses the master narratives of technological and socioeconomic progress that have naturalized Web 2.0’s platforms.

Event will take place at Hootsuite Labs
RSVP required, capacity is very limited. To reserve a space contact mediaassistant@front.bc.ca. Details on the event location will follow.
