Creative work is increasingly becoming digitalized, mediatized and datafied. The webinar addresses the diverse shapes that creative labour takes in our datafied culture. Example cases ranging from fashion industry to digital games also provide openings for thinking about alternative data futures.
Our webinar brings together three leading international scholars of fashion, creative work, and game industry to address the different stakes involved in current-day creative work and data-driven design. Themes of the speakers expand from regional studies of micro-entrepreneurs to the role of datafication in fashion and games. Moving from the overall rationale of work in contemporary culture, we ask how and to what extent the contexts and conditions of creative work and the power relations between key actors are changing.
