How to Do Nothing
world where addictive technology is designed to buy and sell our attention,_x000D_
and our value is determined by our 24/7 data productivity, it can seem_x000D_
impossible to escape. But in this inspiring field guide to dropping out of_x000D_
the attention economy, artist and critic Jenny Odell shows us how we can_x000D_
still win back our lives.|
_x000D_ Odell sees our attention as the most precious—and overdrawn—resource we_x000D_ have. And we must actively and continuously choose how we use it. We might_x000D_ not spend it on things that capitalism has deemed important … but once we can_x000D_ start paying a new kind of attention, she writes, we can undertake bolder_x000D_ forms of political action, reimagine humankind’s role in the environment, and_x000D_ arrive at more meaningful understandings of happiness and progress.
_x000D_ Far from the simple anti-technology screed, or the back-to-nature_x000D_ meditation we read so often, How to do Nothing is an action plan for thinking_x000D_ outside of capitalist narratives of efficiency and techno-determinism._x000D_ Provocative, timely, and utterly persuasive, this book will change how you_x000D_ see your place in our world.
