Lou Fozin Dismantling Your Electroniques
Through a discussion and workshop, Dismantling Your Electroniquesencourages participants to make the connection between everyday digital objects and the minerals that form them. Using an augmented reality installation by Lou Fozin, participants will be invited to reflect on the environmental impacts of their digital lives. In the form of an exchange game, they will be able to stage the geopolitical dynamics linked to the extraction of resources and the manufacturing processes of an electronic device. The participants will be led to collaborate in imagining alternative ways of producing digital tools that are more respectful of environments and the people who inhabit them.

Lou Fozin works and lives in Montreal. Their recent research focuses on durability and digital materialities. They are inspired by the fields of psychology, sociology and political sciences in order to produce, among other things, audio art, coding and 3D production, in a multidisciplinary logic. Fozin’s work has been shown at the SOIR Festival (Montreal), the Concordia University Design and Computation Arts Department graduate exhibition (Montreal) and the VAV Gallery.
