“Every body contains in itself a phantom (perhaps the body itself is a phantom).”
– Paul Schilder, The Image and Appearance of the Human Body
The University at Buffalo, SUNY, Department of Art Lower Gallery is seeking work by artists engaging the intersections between the body and technology. One of the main issues this show undertakes to explore is the relationship between the physical body and an ever-expanding technological space. In the digital age, are we more than just corporeal bodies? What types of relationships do we have with our technology? What does it mean to be wired? What does it feel like living in the digital world?
The curator is looking for work that uses new media and digital technologies to analyze self-identification; along with work that investigates the body’s relation to screens, technogender, Social Media surveillance, data mining, computer memory (the archive or the cloud), digital empathy, and GPS tracking.
Each submission may only include one proposed work:
- Title, Medium, Size, Year
- Short description of the work
- Maximum 5 JPEG images (shared via Dropbox or Flickr), or 2 Time-Based pieces each under two minutes (shared via YouTube or Vimeo).
- Artist Statement and CV
- Technology needs (projectors, monitors…etc.)
Submission Deadline: January 15th, 2015
Email: Liz Bayan at firstname.lastname@example.org
Show Dates: April 20th – May 16th, 2015
