Together, Alone: Presentations and Panel Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Human observer par excellence, Sherry Turkle, published Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other. Her overarching point was that “People are using technologies for intimacy that were designed simply for efficiency." At the same time, we are being bombarded by distractions and spectacles that compete for attention and make focusing difficult. Our presenters will deal with the issues of intimacy and attention, in their own work and in contemporary culture. NY LASER co-directors, Ellen K. Levy and Patricia Olynyk will introduce the three presentators, Zachary Kaplan, Michelle Jaffe, and Ursula Endlicher. Their presentations will be followed by a panel discussion that involves the attendees.
