We will have Jiabao Li as a speaker for our Idle Away Vol.1 -Speculative Caricature. Working at the intersection of emerging technology, art and design, Jiabao creates new ways for humans to perceive the world. Her research-based projects range from wearables, projections, drones and installations to scientific experiments, and they explore how technology is transforming our perception, identity, emotion, and sensation.
We will focus on her recent work “TOSS PAN DANCE 甩锅舞” as a speculative caricature of socio-political systems in the age of covid-19.
