Dismantling Your Electronics
Presented by Ada X as part of the HTMlles festival
Dismantling Your Electronics | Lou Fozin
Wednesday, November 25, 5 pm – 7 pm
Online (Zoom + Mural) | Registration at email@example.com
Designed for teens and young adults, this trading-game based online workshop encourages participants to trace the networks that extend from the digital objects we hold in our hands (phones, computers) to the international landscapes where minerals are extracted to produce those objects. They will explore questions like: What are the environmental impacts of digital technology? What do we destroy, and what do we create with these technologies?
The workshop involves a resource negotiation game using Zoom and Mural as platforms (we will provide access for participants), as well as discussion throughout and following the game. The artist will also introduce aspects of their practice.
