At the dawn of the internet we asked ourselves if the world wide web is shrinking the globe or expanding it. Today we wonder if virtual reality is in fact entirely replacing the real world.
Early household appliances had clear functions and were seen to work for us, they were “automatic for the people; yet in our modern world it is us who work on the computers, living “automatic for the machine.” We give away our data to be harvested as our existence is commodified for surveillance capitalism. WashMachine asserts, “We need to make a clean break from the vicious cycle of profit over people.”
