taeyoon choi event

Distributed Web of Care is an initiative to code to care and code carefully. In January 17, 2019 6 – 8 PM at LACA, Taeyoon Choi will lead a skillshare about his archival process using centralized, decentralized, distributed and peer to peer networks. Taeyoon will share his ongoing research with a critical perspective towards technology, ethics, justice and sensitivity to the concept of personhood. He will show the current status of his archive from teaching and organizing at the School for Poetic Computation along with various technical, conceptual, studio practices. For those who are interested in hands-on experience with Peer to Peer protocol such as Dat, please bring your laptop. However a laptop will not be necessary to participate in the skillshare.
