The world around us has become more automated and intelligent, and in many instances these automated systems carry out the desires and directives of commercial and institutional entities. Dense amounts of information are being collected from devices in public space or cell phones, stored, and transmitted to virtual storage systems that are sometimes being shared without public approval. PTSD: Post-Technomatic Similacral DIYconstructions addresses some of these issues while bringing you delight and profoundly impacting the way you view interactive, hardware, software, and network technology as media for self-expression.
