Stephen Monteiro  | The Fabric of Interface

How may a handheld screen function like a loom, visual data function like swatches of fabric, or tactile interfaces function like needlework? What can such affinities tell us about digital media’s relationship to labor, industry, and gender? Presenting from his new book, Stephen Monteiro (Sociology and Anthropology, Concordia) examines how contemporary personal media forms and practices have been shaped by the larger histories of manufacturing, visual narrative, and social inequality.
