XVIII. Digital PTSD. The Practice of Art and Its Impact on Digital Trauma | Cally Spooner
In this presentation, Cally Spooner joins an assortment of notes on her current research with a new proposal: that “digital PTSD” is the result of an aggressive reality; “the performance principle”, identified in 1955 by Herbert Marcuse and found today in surveillance capitalist culture as well as chrono-normative regimes. The concept of temps mort (lit. “dead time”), after which Spooner’s ongoing work DEAD TIME is titled, provides a framework to test states of duration, undetectability, waiting, less controlled life and rehearsal as modes of resistance to our century’s demand for performance.
