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.
