Amber Case, keynote speaker at The Conference

“what we are looking at now is not an extension of the physical self, but an extension of the mental self”

Amber Case is a cyborg anthropologist that is focusing on how we interact with our machines and what happens when we can reach everybody we want at anytime through our devices. She is also one of the cofounders of the location sharing application Geoloqi.

At Media Evolution The Conference Case will be talking about “how the field of anthropology can be applied to interface design, and how future interfaces, such as the ones employed by augmented reality, will change the way we act, feel and communicate with one another. Topics will include non-places, time and space compression, privacy, user flow, supermodernity, wearable computing, work and play, gaming, history and prosthetic culture.”
