Too often, it seems, artists use technology in a way that makes the works stand by themselves: mute, indifferent to human communication. In contrast with this kind of art, my work instances how technology can be used to further interactive communication, while at the same time indicating the potentials dangers (such as alienation) specific to mediated communication. I will use several of my projects to broach how artists use technology to present their art works: both positive and negative examples. The project will emphasize how some artists let technology overshadow their art, and also pose an alternative to this form of practice, showing how technology can be an essential tool when subordinated to aesthetic concerns.
The work is about what humans will become if modified by technological devices. Our future bodies will probably be significantly modified by technical appendages. The audience and I will present the potential of the human body, and the potential of technology as a fully integrated means of communication.
