In a techno-capitalist economy that thrives on the quantification of nature and computation of our innermost lives, we ask: What are the gaps between how machines read our emotions and how emotions actually feel in our bodies?
In this workshop, we will collectively explore the emotional resilience of the body towards platforms that surveil, manipulate, and automate the human experience. To do so, we will delve into the emotional materiality of the body by using “the blob” metaphor as a lens and a tool to investigate and appreciate the complexities of human emotion. Feeling and sensing through a series of choreographed explorations and discussions, we will create and hold a space for blobby emotivity to emerge—an embodied experience where we embrace the inexplicable and the non-quantifiable, the slow and messy.
This workshop will be led by former Tech Resident and Founder of The Centre for Emotional Materiality Surabhi Saraf and Centre for Emotional Material member Laura Hyunjhee Kim.
