UnProductive Solutions

Rebekah Modrak, Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design

Collaborators: Marialaura Ghidini, curator, course leader Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology 

UnProductiveSolutions is an artwork that will collectively imagine a technological world with a soul. UnProductiveSolutions will be structured as an umbrella “company” developing services that mimic, disrupt, and challenge current uses and assumptions associated with existing technologies. As artists/curators acting in the guise of venture capitalists, Modrak & Ghidini will set up the project infrastructure (Phase I), invite artists to run their own subsidiary companies (Phase II), and present the speculative results on the UnProductiveSolutions website (Phase II). The far-reaching and collaborative speculations aims to liberate people from tech-enabled social intelligences and prioritize more meaningful life experiences, beyond measurability.
