The film Her showed a man increasingly dominated by new technologies, to the extent that he found it hard to distinguish between fiction and reality, living in a world of illusions. This session explores the arguments around the use of technologies, exploring the extended use of digital technologies within our personal and working lives and critiques how the technologies could be utilised, for good or ill.
