Natalie Bookchin - Affective Collectives and the shared self.

Studio Beta, EMPAC

February 22, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Bookchin will discuss a body of work of multi-channel video

installations and single-channel videos made up of numerous fragments

of first-person vernacular videos.  Digging deep into databases of

online videos on social platforms, she finds material that might not

otherwise be seen, or creates her own archives of videos that appear

to be absent online. The works explores changing boundaries between

public and private, and present individual and collective performances

of the shared self in an era of ubiquitous connectivity.
