    rmacgregor

    Robbie is interested in where the tools we use everyday come from. He argues that there is power in knowing how things work, especially when it comes to technology and the internet. He encourages us to learn technology’s biases and argues that we need to do away with the idea of technology as magic. While he acknowledges that not everyone is going to take up programming he insists we should at least learn the rules of the game and be curious about how technology works.

    Eryn and Ryan discuss the impact reading Susan Sontag had on their thought and their practices as photographers. They believe Sontag was prophetic in the context of social media and the internet and that we have all now become curators of our own exhibitions of self through social media platforms and the cultural obsession with documentation.
