Momimsafe – A spin on surveillance technology to explore human empathy

This is a presentation proposal to introduce the artistic and technical inspiration behind Momimsafe (https://momimsafe.live); a project that was my response to the covid-19 lockdown in Chicago. This work is a disarmingly simple use of technology to passively link distant spaces during a time of isolation and unpredictability. Along with a telepresence element, Momimsafe led to a number of satellite projects that emerged from it.
