Intimacy in contemporary life

Workshop

What is the feeling of intimacy? How do we know we are being intimate, feeling close, being in
love? Given that digital technological tools are an integral part of our everyday lives, and the age of AGI (artificial general intelligence) seems closer than ever, what will be the role of emotions in these future
societies where technology becomes even more seamlessly merged with humanity? In this workshop, we will travel through the discourses in our scientific, artistic, and digital cultures which have helped
frame and shape our understanding of what it means to be intimate both in our spatial and mental
landscapes. Thus, examining the construct of intimacy through the prism of technology.
