Jeremijenko and the Bureau of Inverse Technology indict technology in fascinating and hilarious ways. Hers is art that sharpens vision and critical thinking rather than informing and pleasing. Yet, it was so much fun.
What was the most difficult to grasp about her work, which to my mind is a reasonable price to pay, were the complexities and socio-political conditions which it reflected and in which it was produced -- these were foregrounded in her lecture, Jeremijenko is clearly politically identified, but remained somewhat vague to me.
She is a terrific de-mystifier of technology, and her talk demonstrated an expert command of irony...
I would like to think more about the politics of the database -- anyone?
