Hector Amaya’s project engages new forms of violence and harm afforded by digitization and internet technologies, and evaluates them against normative ideas about publicness and intersubjectivity. These forms of violence include bullying and trolling; hate speech; self-published violence; digital geopolitics, such as political and infrastructure cyber-attacks; and hacking.
