Technology Within, Technology Without
October 15, 9am–1pm, Johnson Creek City Park
The embodied experiences inherent in technology can exist in the absence of it. By removing the objects that transport us to the internet we can better understand how these things alter the ways we interact with eachother and the world. It is assumed that technology and nature are very different things. During this class we will subsitute the phone or computer with the natural world and consciously search for their similiarties. Through this we can appreciate how these experiences have changed our perception, and learn how to best utilize these tools going forward. This workshop will be comprised of subtle excersizes that uses the media we are so familiar with to show how it has altered our sense of ourselves, objects, space, and our interactions with eachother.
