Workshop / Seminar
Open to the public

Artist Caroline Sinders will present her work and lead a workshop on how design impacts privacy and security, and will explore ways to rethink how current large technology platforms generate surveillance capitalism that harm users but benefit the companies themselves. These workshops are interactive, and require no technology. Participants will be led through a series of speculative design exercises, allowing participants to rethink, remake, and reshape technology so it serves them and their communities, and not just the companies.

Sinders is the 2023 Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence. This annual international competition awards one residency per academic year to a visiting artist/​designer who proposes to develop a new work in collaboration with members of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design and the University of Michigan community. Learn more about Sinders’ residency and practice in this Q&A.
