Talk by Areej Huniti, Ahmed Isam Aldin and Tamara Nassar, who presented the projects they have developed the past two months as part of the Internet of Things: Another World is Possible (IOTAWIP) online residency. The talk marks the opening of the exhibition in its first iteration, accompanied by the release of an online publication featuring works by the residents and contributions from the public that respond to the conceptual framework of IOTAWIP.
IOTAWIP is an exhibition project facilitating a collective inquiry from (and through) the quarantine. Navigating online and offline. Traversing temporalities. It is an invitation for reflecting on the Situ, from our active positions behind the screens. Deconstructing the crisis, contingency, social structures, cyberspace, memes, anxiety, technology, geography and body-politics. From live stream to news feed. From the medium and its discontents, to the state of emergency.
