NARRATIVES

UPCOMING WORK


COMING SOON

TECHNOLOGICAL NARRATIVES

A series of short docs that explores the philosophy of technology through personal narratives. This series is inspired by Narrative and Technology Ethics by Wessel Reijers and Mark Coeckelbergh.

Check out how humans all over the globe are coming to grips with the benefits and challenges of living with technology. I document personal stories from creators, bankers, gamers, government officials and many others. From luddites to technologists, all have important stories to tell to help us think through how to live the good life in an increasingly technological world.

“How [do we] live well with technology? We can only begin to comprehend the answer to this question through narratives, through stories.” *

COMING SOON

MANUAL LABOR AS SELF CARE

A series short documentaries about people transitioned from purely intellectual work to tactile hobbies or professions. This series spawned slcrft.com, where makers discuss the integration of work, technology and the pursuit of the good life.

More to come in 2022.

“We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us.
