Professor Stephanie Rothenberg presents two installations, Planthropy and Laborers of Love/LOL at the Sight and Sound Festival: Per Capita in Montreal, Canada from September 28th until October 2nd.

Planthropy is a robotic garden of hanging plants whose lifelines depend on cause-related Tweets questioning what it means to be charitable through the click of a button.

Laborers of Love/LOL is a crowdsourcing project co-created with Jeff Crouse that explores how sexuality and desire are mediated through new technologies, specifically new models of global, outsourced labor.
