unprofitable actions and tender labor in the age of the pocket

in collaboration with caroline wood and joshua wilkerson

series of 18 hand-bound pamphlets

risograph, inkjet

2018

like a parody of 1960's techno-futurist bomb shelter pamphlets, this series of instructional pamphlets outlines performative and introspective prompts for more attentive engagement with ourselves and each other in the face of pervasive technologies evolving in the name of coercion and profit. through this work we explored questions about the value of our own time and labor, the corporatization of the everyday, the automatization of sociability, and the limits of transparency in the realm of surveillance capital.
