I Agree To The Terms (2022)

An online event made in collaboration with MTurk workers

I Agree To The Terms was developed by The Builders Association in collaboration with a community of microworkers, or MTurk workers, who train the algorithms that shape our online experience. This new, interactive multi-screen performance premiered online March 25-April 3, 2022.

Most MTurk workers are Americans living in rural areas where jobs are scarce. MTurk workers earn from $1 to $100 a day in a vast, unregulated industry. Their assignments are repetitive, boring, maddening, and sometimes disturbing.

In this 30–45-minute online encounter, audiences will enter the “Builders Marketplace,” train with actual MTurk workers, and compete for paying jobs while being timed, rated and paid in virtual Builders Coin!

I Agree To The Terms was presented by NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, and was broadcast live from MITU580.
