Performance: I'm that Angel - Tyler Coburn

I’m that angel is a cycle of writings and performances by Tyler Coburn that explore the conditions of how we work on and against the computer, narrated from the perspective of a “content farmer”.

Nov 2016
16:15 to 18:00
location: iD3 data center, at the Van Nelle

A content farmer is an emergent type of online journalist contracted to generate articles based on words peaking in Google Trends. Coburn periodically holds readings at data centers worldwide, including the Google campuses in New York and Zurich and Bahnhof's Pionen complex in Stockholm.  In Rotterdam, Coburn is collaborating with i3D.net.  These events give attendees access to the facilities that compose the physical form of the Internet – to the sites where "the cloud" is kept.

RSVP required, as capacity is very limited!
