Northwest Film Forum says
Chat Room is a quarterly forum on art in the age of the Internet, with a new topic for each edition. Chat Room aims to demystify the fundamental questions about art and its broader place in society in a playful and approachable manner. Expect Powerpoint presentations, serious discussion, games, and A-ha moments worthy of Oprah.

Join us for the inaugural edition of Chat Room, on the topics of value, labor and the quantification of art work, featuring:

James Coupe, an artist who works with installation, video, internet and public art, exploring themes of surveillance, privacy, and most recently, crowdworking. His work has been exhibited worldwide, including venues such as Camden Arts Centre, ZKM and the Henry Art Gallery. http://jamescoupe.com

Dorothy Howard, a researcher and writer on digital and immaterial labor, a former Wikimedia-in-Residence, and the founder and editor-in-chief of Arachne, a webzine about mythology and the Internet. http://www.dorothyhoward.com/

Christopher Paul Jordan, a PNW born digital designer and muralist specializing in large scale public works and co-director of Tacoma based youth organization Fab-5. http://cargocollective.com/chrisssjordan
