Dear cool person, you're invited to an evening filled with some drinking and thinking!
About the Evening / Curatorial Statement:
Technology in all its forms enables human beings to transcend our limitations. But what about our ultimate limitation: mortality?
The fact of death may be non-negotiable, and in this Drink Salon, we explore how human beings shape its manner and meaning using technology. Oftentimes whether consciously, by developing weapons or medicines, or unconsciously, through the adoption of other seemingly unrelated technologies, we develop technologies that afford us greater control than ever before over our bodies and environments.
In light of this trend, we ask: How do different technologies mediate our material and emotional concerns? How do certain technologies orient us to confront—or to ignore—death? What does it mean to re-negotiate our anxieties and hopes of what it means to die and, in turn, what it means to live?
There will of course be refreshing beverages and delicious snacks.
The event will kick-off with this month's Drink Salon Community Curators, Amanda Zhang and Kit Cali.
