SPRING REFERENCE DOCUMENT

Website, Product, Workshop, Audio

In preparation for the spring 2020 studio, the class created an inspirational document to address the following themes of the studio:

- Code as agent

- The California Central Valley

- The future of work

My particular interest lied in the links between the future of work and code as agent looking at the role of digital trash. The topic is not explored as thoroughly as physical waste which I had been previously investigating in another project. I was particularly interesting in the phenomenon of digital hoarding, taxonomies of junk emails and how digital junk relates to our memory.

When sharing research with others, I also developed an interest in speculations of the future of agriculture and the way we feed ourselves especially when taking a sustainable angle.
