Linn Phyllis Seeger + Professor Ellen Helsper
With Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube and Twitch being the big winners of this time, this talk looks at how we navigate physical and virtual identities, how people’s identities and values influence the way we use and built technologies, and how in return, technological systems shape the way we work, live and communicate together.
Working at the interface between photography, video, and 3D animation, Linn Phyllis Seeger’s work is rooted in digital photographic practices and screen based media. She examines tools of identity formation, generating case studies of how to bear up against the abstract spaces of virtuality, and urban landscapes. As both a PHD candidate at the Royal College of Art and curator of the PhotoBook Museum in Cologne, Linn Phyllis Seeger lives and works in the cloud.
Ellen Helsper is Professor of Digital Inequalities in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE, and Programme Director for the MSc Media and Communications (Research). Her current research in erests include the links between social and digital inequalities; mediated interpersonal communication; participatory immersive digital spaces (VR, ER); and quantitative and qualitative methodological developments in media and communications research. Ellen consults widely for governments, the third and commercial sectors on issues to do with client and citizen engagement in increasingly digital societies.
