Film: Postmodern Times

2 pm | Tue, December 19, 2017
Brown Auditorium

As part of the artist’s project Workflow, Art + Technology Lab grant recipient Michael Mandiberg recreated Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times using digital labor sourced from Fiverr.com’s work marketplace. The clips were produced by different workers, resulting in a fragmented and chaotic film that reflects the conditions of digital labor itself.

The screening schedule will be in accordance with California state labor laws, stopping for rest breaks, mirroring the schedule of a once routine but now atypical work day.
