Event description

Description

In this seminar Sarah Pink will show the film Laundry Lives with view to generating a discussion around the question of designing for environmental sustainability, and the role that video ethnography can play in such processes.

Laundry Lives:
Everyday Life and Environmental Sustainability in Indonesia (40 mins)
Laundry Lives takes us into the usually invisible everyday worlds of five middle class Indonesians - Lia, Dyna, Ning, Adi and Nur. As Indonesia's economy and market grows there are hidden implications for the domestic lives of the country’s rapidly expanding professional middle classes, and for environmental sustainability. Laundry Lives captures this moment of change, showing the shifting gender relations, new technologies and environmental concerns that need to be accounted for in the design of sustainable futures.

Directors:
Sarah Pink is Professor of Design and Media Ethnography, and Director of the Digital Ethnography Research Centre at RMIT University, Australia.
Nadia Astari is a freelance documentary filmmaker based in Australia and Indonesia. Her films have won awards in Melbourne's Indonesian Film Festival and 15/15 Film Festival.
