See technology as a social medium – and not simply as a means of solving a problem

Technology is too often seen solely in terms science and reason: something that is designed to dispassionately carry out a task. This overlooks technology’s wider social, cultural, and environmental biases and therefore impacts. The ways in which technology conditions how different groups of society, humans and non-humans relate to each other, to spatial conditions, and to climate are at best hidden and at worst distorted. Failing to critically engage with the inherent injustice that lies in technical solutionism prevents an exploration of technology’s real possibilities. See, draw, understand and work with technology as a medium, but never an end in itself.
