11/05/2016 Higher Learning: Wendy Chun on Habitual New Media Downtown Free

Theorist Wendy Chun joins post-secondary students and faculty to discuss her forthcoming book Updating to Remain the Same: Habitual New Media (16), in which she argues that technologies matter most not when they are new, but when they have become obsolete - when their use becomes habitual. Join us at TIFF Bell Lightbox where Chun will explore how the slow, "creepy" accretion of habits - both conscious and unconscious - relate to distinctions between public and private, memory and storage, and individual actions and social systems. This event is co-presented by TIFF and York University's Department of Visual Art & Art History.
