Conducted in Cantonese and English.

Today, technology is becoming more and more difficult to evade. Faced with ‘invisible technology’, humans have nowhere to hide. Ubiquitous computing, the Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence all seem to be advancing humanity, but in reality, they are changing the way we interact with our surroundings in insidious ways—simplifying our actions, compressing our motivations, and defining our digital existence. However, there is not only the ‘human use of human beings’, but also the human ways: obscure, improvised, faulty and serendipitous. This workshop seeks to inspire participants
to rethink how technology regulates and intrudes in our daily lives as well as to respond to this regulation and intrusion with practical action.
