When design is dominated by incremental improvements and techno-utopian dreams, we believe there is a need to aesthetically engage the shadowy and contradictory aspects of technologies. As a cross between participatory design and art intervention, we have been experimenting with the release of Network Anxieties Packets. Covering concerns from Facebook Likes to weaponized drone strikes, our packets engage negative affective dimensions of networks including paranoia, exhaustion, and creepiness.
