Macy Siu in conversation

Artist, producer, designer and Artengine’s Artistic Director, Ryan Stec, in conversation with DEL participant, artist, and foresight strategist, Macy Siu, where they discuss her collaborative project the Offer Need Machine (ONM/NOM). Within this discussion Siu addresses themes of anti-capitalist alternatives in relation to networks of decentralized reciprocity, eroding established attitudes around the value of artistic and cultural labour, time as currency, and culminates in a call for more-than-human design.
