Lunchtime listen for you guys, Dr Anna Derrig was on our show this week, but she goes in depth into the ethics of life writing in this episode of Four Thought. Well worth a listen if you’re going to write your life story.
It’s our 100th episode today (cue squeaky wee geeky squeal). So Digital Human flipped the script and we’re bringing you the Analogue Human! Edited and broadcast from TAPE!
With the help of artists, musicians and photographers Aleks asks if the endless possibilities we’re offered by digital tools are as liberating as we think or paradoxically are they paralysing, making it impossible to choose one product, picture, tindr date over another.
In this sneak pic, musician Damon Krukowski explains the difference between the clean, perfected sound of the digital world, compared to the organic noise in analogue world. And how in cutting out the messiness of noise, we may risk losing layers of complexity, beauty and meaning in the world.
Be sure to listen to the full podcast here Digital Human, Series 17, Ep 2: The Analogue Human or download it from iTunes any time after it’s broadcast.
Wagner James Au was great to have on the show but a nightmare to cut since so much of the interview was fascinating.
Thankfully, his blog covers everything we couldn’t possibly fit into a 30 minute podcast so go check it out, as well as continuing his second life journalism he’s got really cool stuff on VR communities and the beauty of digital art 🙂
Stephanie is so fascinating, I wish we could just follow her around with a mic for day… but that might be just as creepy as the data harvesting we talked about in today’s episode… never mind.
