CAre B0t

An online project written and designed by Caroline Sinders. Programmed by Alex Fefegha of Comuzi

04 Jun - 31 Dec 2021

2pm - 5:30pm
Tuesday to Saturday

This project came out of a specific place of studying harassment online, but also thinking about the reaches of where technology will take us.

The CAre B0t isn’t designed to be used in place of a therapist or a security expert. The CAre B0t is an artistic intervention showing exactly how painful and uncaring the policies and procedures are for victims when reporting harassment and mitigating harassment.
