Human in the Wire

Culture 2022 - 600x400_w_stripe_HumanInTheWire.jpg

Exhibition Dates: 4 to 29 May 2022   

A Council curated group exhibition which contemplates the technologisation of the human.

Human in the Wire is an exhibition contemplating the technologisation of the human. It explores the notion of how technology is embedded within ‘the human’. It looks at aspects of the body and personal identity and how these aspects may activate technology, be absorbed by it, or subsumed within it. The exhibition seeks to go beyond the singular idea of automated robot, but to look at the various modes of automation, mechanisation and technologisation of the human itself through the use of technology, and asks the question, “how does digital technology change us?” 

The exhibition provides visitors with an opportunity to interact directly with the some of the artworks, encouraging them to examine the evolving nature of humanity. Including immersive augmented reality installations, virtual reality, video art, sculptural installations, ephemeral art  and technology based two-dimensional works, this exhibition explores art within the technological realm in a multitude of ways. Investigating ideas surrounding identity and the role of humans in a technologically driven contemporary world, these artists urge audiences to reflect upon the self and our changing relationship to the natural world. 

The exhibition will take place across Art Space on The Concourse, The Concourse Outdoor Area and The Concourse Urban Screen.

ARTISTS: Tully Arnot, Tristan Chant, Gary Deirmendjian, Susannah Langley with Warren Armstrong, Trinity Morris and Sean Costello, Saffron Newey, Adam Norton, Miguel Olmo, Baden Pailthorpe and Tyler Payne.

Sound Art: Karen analyses their images

Karen analyses their images was created during the 'Picturing Sound' workshop as part of the Human in the Wire exhibition. The workshop, led by Miguel Olmo, explored the use of Virtual ANS synthesiser to generate sounds from images.
