The Quick Shall Inherit The EarthLink
Advancements in technology are almost universally heralded as progress. Yet engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs of Silicon Valley, who are supposedly tasked with this progress are often found frequenting offline resorts and embarking on digital detoxes. The rise of the Slow Movement and a rejection of digital technologies demonstrates a desire to regain control of an accelerated pace of lie and end what has come to be known as 'time poverty'. A video installation and performance explores how the speed of digital technologies produce a desire to disconnect in order to reconnect with ourselves and the planet.
