As our identities operate simultaneously as audience, users, and labourers of the web, Elizabeth Orr presents the lecture/performance The Conveyor: adopting the metaphor of the infinite loop of a conveyor belt, The Conveyor is a meditation on the emotional resonance and perceptual planes of user interface experience (UX). Her presentation includes video, text and scenes from her recent project MT RUSH and her work-in-progress The Conveyor, suggesting a relationship between contemporary art, interface design and gender through kinetic metaphors of image consumption, making and production.
