Reimagining the future
- w/ Laura Rosser, Karen Abadie, Molly Mcandrews
We invite participants to collectively engage in reimagining the future. Expanding and exploring our networks, online and offline, has never felt so significant in this time of uncertainty. The workshop will distribute a new shared condition across systems, between bodies, and develop a collective future.
The questionable logic of wikiHow provides instructional content that is a subjective, temporal solution. WikiHow enables the public to modify and update content and presents a framework of open collaboration, as it is a collective work in progress of sorts. We invite participants to re-shape and re-think uncertain times, through manipulating and exploring algorithmically reproduced instruction sets from wikiHow, that span between meaning and nonmeaning, logical and abstract thought. We anticipate that the instruction sets will be a site of discussion and experimentation, with potential for (and not limited to) collaborative writing, performance, video, installation, programming, drawing, appropriation and dialogue.
