Join anthropologist and Museum Studies researcher Chiara Garbellotto for a group research day into how our relationships with technology in retail spaces make us into shopping cyborgs. Working with tools from anthropology, media studies and visual culture we will observe, discuss and represent the embodied experience of the shopper. Through indoor and outdoors activities we will share our ideas on how our bodies interact with technology whilst shopping and what kind of data we produce and mediate.
