Program highlights Feeling from Afar

Ann Hirsch Decay2e

Highlights of the Impakt screening program Feeling fom Afar in which a look is given at those digital systems that try to optimize humans by alienating their emotions from their actions, i.e. where the Drone operator and the webcam stripper are made strange bedfellows. Where does the self go when it’s split into two by a computer? Also what of the self-made shut-in whose entire affective reality is built on the input of strangers online: are they any different than the robot who can only download its feelings?
