"Digital Death Dive" is a dip into finding poetic inspiration via digital technology. In this workshop, participants will discuss the ethics and theories of technology as a means of artistic production, weaving in the history of techno music, then launch into different means of unlocking a poetic flow through the use of personal technology. Please be prepared to use a smartphone and bring a laptop. Workshop is from 1:20pm to 4:10pm.
