Technolust, curated by Faith Holland. Cable Car Cinema & Café, 204 South Main Street, Providence, RI. Thursday, February 13 at 19:00.
Technolust is not whispering sweet nothings to your OS all night. Technolust is the stir in your body when you run your fingers along a perfectly smooth metal curve. Technolust is the sensation of softly tapping rounded plastic buttons with your fingers. Technolust is battery-powered pleasure. Technolust is the thrill of viewing beautiful sets of pixels. Come with your laptop, smart phone, personal device, thumbdrive, or significant other to a special program of technoeroticism this Valentine’s Day Eve.
