Human in the Wire is a contemporary art exhibition which explores the notion of how ‘the human’ is embedded or contained within technology. It looks at how our bodies and personal identities may activate technology, be absorbed by it, or subsumed within it. The exhibition includes artworks from Australian based artists who are working creatively with new technologies, exploring figurative art within technology, and how the body can be immersed in technology. By examining how artists are interpreting the impact on one’s identity when humans manipulate technology via their body (either willingly or unwillingly), this exhibition seeks to go beyond the singular idea of the automated robot, and looks at the various modes of automation, mechanisation and technologisation of the human itself through the use of technology.
This event is supported by the Willoughby Council.
