MALfunction: A series of intimate events that question where media and society, research and practice meet. Each MALfunction features one researcher and one artist whose work examines a similar technological theme. FREE and open to the public.

Artist: Isaac Oliver, Intimacy Idiot
Isaac Oliver’s debut collection of essays, Intimacy Idiot, was named one of NPR’s Best Books of 2015 and was recently released in paperback, in addition to hardcover, e-book, and audiobook. He is a 2016 resident artist at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in New York City with his recurring evening, Isaac Oliver Sits Down. Isaac’s stories have been featured on BuzzFeed, Gawker, Out, and in Next Magazine and Frontiers.

Researcher: Amy Hasinoff, “What Can Sexting Teach us About Consent?” 
Amy Hasinoff is an Assistant Professor in the Communication department at the University of Colorado Denver. Her work investigates how we think about new media and how those ideas affect the way we develop, use, and regulate communication technologies. Her book, Sexting Panic (2015), is about the well-intentioned but problematic responses to sexting in mass media, law, and education.

Presented by the Media Archaeology Lab and hosted at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History. Curated by Maya Livio.
