A More Fruitful Way to Spend Freetime 2017

May 20, 2017.
Plateforme Gallery, Paris

This showcase of works from the class Disnovation taught by French artist Nicolas Maigret will focus on the friction spaces generated by the Gig Economy. During the spring 2017 semester students from the BFA AMT and MFA Design + Technology have been making work and research around various topics related to technological innovation and their social, political and environmental impacts. This exhibition will be a continuation of a series of events around this topic co-organised by the Art, Media and Technology Department of Parsons Paris and Nicolas Maigret since 2013.

In the frame of this exhibition, www.send-me-a-task.com was performed for the first time. www.send-me-a-task.com is an online service directing artists Dasha Ilina and Amanda Lewis to fulfill algorithmic tasks emulating the demanding workflow that workers subjected to gig economy standards experience every day.
