Chloé Hazelwood interviews Constant Ecology artist Amalia Lindo about her residency project here. 
Amalia Lindo’s Constant Ecology project will offer ‘crowdworkers’ on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (MTurk) platform an ethical wage for their involvement in a video-based study. Amalia’s recent works consider how the media ecology of digital platforms affects human perception through algorithmic organisation. Through this project Amalia will invite MTurk workers to upload a 15-second video clip describing a view from their location. This video data will be used to create short films reflecting the diverse interpretations of this task.
