POETECHS creates socially-engaged art that helps people troubleshoot the emotional side effects of networked life. Friends become followers. Tirades become tweetstorms. You update your status and caption your selfie. You say “slash” between words. You block your enemies and screenshot your crushes. You’re a user. You use. POETECHS explores how all this use makes us feel— how screen time changes the nature of intimacy. Technology validates, triggers, and exhausts us.
