Scam and Spam with Paloma Izquierdo and Kyle Richardson

The two-session workshop, led by Tech Residents Paloma Izquierdo and Kyle Richardson, focuses on select theories of scamming and spamming within the context of art and art theory. The workshop is not about digital security or promoting scam/spam activities; instead, it offers an interactive exploration of culture.

This workshop adopts an experimental lecture format, starting with a presentation by the residents during the first session and transitioning to the participants' contributions in the second session.

Paloma Izquierdo and Kyle Richardson work together. Izquierdo examines techno-sociality through infrastructures, object animism and disrupting social spaces. She is concerned with surveillance and its relation to sex, labor, and the feminized body. She merges design and sculpture, using the disarming perception of feminized objects to subvert expectations by applying technologies of control. She went to the Cooper Union and to the Yale School of Art.

Classes at Pioneer Works are made possible by Sandeman Port.

This program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
