State of Fashion 2021 | Intervention 03: Transition | Digital Footprint Workshop

Algorithmic Gaze Workshop result by participant Wei Chi Su.

Whether you are using social media a lot or more occasionally, they influence our life. Maybe even more than you know? Within this Digital Footprint Workshop guided by Chinouk Filique de Miranda, you will look for the way in which you position yourself as a user-consumer within your personal digital landscape. By investigating your ‘scrolling behaviour’ while using new media platforms and its algorithms, in order to analyse your personal digital footprint, we will try to find and highlight interrelated (subliminal) commercial structures. During the session you will translate your findings into something visually tangible, that reinterprets your digital environment. This enables you to reclaim some agency in the digital landscape. Something which is maybe more relevant than you think now..

What is a digital footprint?

One’s digital footprint contains information about a particular person that exists on the Internet as a result of their online activity. In abstract form, it is a unique set of traceable digital activities, actions, contributions and communications manifested on the Internet and through the use of digital devices.

CHINOUK FILIQUE DE MIRANDA

Chinouk is the author of the third part of the multilogue and will be organizing the Digital Footprint Workshop on Sunday January 31st.

Chinouk Filique de Miranda, a design researcher and critical fashion practitioner, aims to explore the crossover between the fashion system and digital culture by focusing on introducing digital literacy in fashion. In her practice she approaches fashion as a subliminal communication vehicle which she aims to de-mystify in order to inform consumers on complex matters regarding individual agency within our current digital culture.

In her on-going research project ‘The Algorithmic Gaze’, the digitization of fashion and the new ways the fashion system and its consumers connect and communicate through newly acquired technological rhythms is explored and explained.

The workshop takes place on Sunday 31 January, from 12:30 – 15:30. You can register for this free online workshop by sending an e-mail to events@stateoffashion.org including your full name and mentioning 'Therapy Session' in the subject.
