People enjoy my company
A film connecting the privatisation of state-owned telecommunications with techno-optimism, euphoria and online communication in the lead up to the millennium.
People enjoy my company is currently screening as part of no_matter_here, a digital artwork, web zine and exhibition which connects the work of artists exploring pre-millenium networks as potential sites of technological emancipation.
