A potato flew around my room before you came, Pepe the Frog NFT, black TikTok creators on strike, Barbz calling out Lana stans, everything happens so much. Did Kim Kardashian break the internet or has the internet already broken us?
The internet once promised to improve our lives: cultural democracy, limitless information, and instant global connectivity. Now we’re downloading movies in seconds but waiting longer for takeaway than it would take us to cook, begging the question: has this all gone too far?
If your screen time app tells you you’re looking at your phone more than you’re looking at your family, or you’ve woken up to Netflix asking if you’re still there, or you’ve set up a finsta to casually check on an ex – this event is for you. If you can’t relate – this event is also for you (and please teach us your ways).
Join an electrifying mix of interdisciplinary artists as they debate the power of the internet, and whether its hold on our lives is a force for good or evil.
The event will open with a screening of Archie Chew and Alicia Easaw-Mamutil’s satirical short film, Call Me Puritan.
