Description

We are in the midst of the digital age and what Donna Haraway coined as the integrated circuit of high-tech capital. Digital technology has engulfed all aspects of contemporary living, the web is used widely to make, store and distribute production and services. The technical is now also political - and robots are coming to stay! It is timely to reflect on what it means to be human. Although technology has significantly influenced art making and altered representation, artists still manipulate and control aspects of creation ‘by hand’, often combining digital and analogue forms.

A symposium exploring the concept of being human and the digital-analogue divide through sound/image will be held on Thursday 23 November 2017, 2pm - 5pm, in the CCA cinema. New works by UWS artists, researchers and students will be featured alongside screenings, talks and demonstrations. The symposium will close with a live performance by Saint McCabe and Robert Motyka.
