The Slow TV Crafting Cycle: Artist Talk with Andrew Salomone
March 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In response to the anxieties that result from being perpetually plugged in, many people have taken up crafty hobbies as a form of stress relief. Netflix even picked up Norwegian “Slow TV,” featuring live videos of people knitting, which are intended to be calming. Recently, Salomone has made costumes that he calls “social media hazmat suits” from traditionally crafty processes in reference to the cycle of making crafts as stress relief from social media and then sharing those crafts on social media again. Concepts discussed by cultural analyst Sherry Turkle in her books Alone Together, and Reclaiming Conversation informs these costumes.
