Erotics of Metadata

This is an idea for an article I’m working on.

It is influenced by Susan Sontag’s Against Interpretation, specifically the titutal essay where she calls for an erotics of art instead of a hermeneutics of art.

This article explores the sensual, pleasurable element of working with metadata. It focuses on aesthetics rather than ethics.

It will draw in concepts of labor from Charles Fourier, where he calls for the transformation of labor into pleasure. I need to do more research on this particular concept.
