Fireside Stories is a virtual performance. Starting from a quote by Laurie Anderson: “technology today is the campfire around which we tell our stories”, this short presentation leads at the changing relationships between technology and culture. The text draws upon historical and contemporary sources – from Benjamin to Virilio – and personal anecdotes or observations. Fireside Stories is a performance disembodied – only my image on screen appears before you.
