Image Platform Workshippers Research Lab with S()fia Braga

You’re all caught up: camouflage and exposure in the age of platform capitalism

Transmedia artist S()fia Braga takes part in the AMRO Research Lab 2023 organised by the net culture association servus.at. Within this context, her research explores the intricate control dynamics facilitated by the operational structures of centralised social media platforms, as well as their sociological implications. Specifically, she focuses on topics such as participatory control –exploring the concept of Interveillance,– emerging forms of free labor, and strategies to carefully balance oneself into visibility and deception while traversing the "Dark Forest of the Internet."
