    Prof Kosmala curatorial research is cited linking with the exhibition and the associated programme of events:

    “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.”
