Bots as Digital Infrapunctures
This module was written by Cristina Cochior and Manetta Berends and produced in collaboration with Dr. Karin van Es and Creative Coding Utrecht. It combines theoretical and practical work, bringing the fields of digital humanities, design and media art together, and proposes to use the format of the prototype (and the activity of prototyping) as performative theoretical tool that feeds different practices into each other. More specifically, It explores what role bots can have as infrastructural stress relievers, by actively engaging with the norms and values inscribed into computational tools and infrastructures.
