Human Condition

Students in Digital + Media question what it means to be human, and explore contemporary existence by offering new definitions of intimacy, empathy, self, memory and consciousness.

Frequently, they offer new systems, platforms or tools for emotionally connecting or communicating with others. They often employ humor or absurdity in order to address issues of misunderstanding or miscommunication.

Through self reflection, writing and performance, they interrogate how technology can enhance or inhibit human relationships. By proposing methods to re-align, augment, redefine or expose our symbiotic relationship with technology, D+M students explore the human condition in the digital age.
