Killing Time

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, October 23, 2019. 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Humanities Center Boardroom
Workshop: 
Digital Aesthetics: Critical Approaches to Computational Culture
Meeting Description: 

Jenny Odell is a visiting lecturer in art practice in Stanford's Department of Art and Art History.

One of the threads of Odell's last book, How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy, concerned the ways in which the "time is money" equation has become more and more pervasive, extending into realms of leisure and even sleep. This talk will examine the history of how time became money in the modern sense; contrast homogenous, commodified time with heterogeneous ecological time (migrations, flowering events, stages of succession, etc.); and delineate the increasing clash between these two views of time within the context of climate change.
