movLab #22: Human and technology

  • Start time: 19:30
  • Free entrance

'In the 21st century, as our individual agency, cognition and subjectivity extends into, and through, our prosthetic digital technologies, the human subject is increasingly constituted as an assemblage of human-computer-communication networks.’

As a start, we’re gonna discuss Kathy Cleveland's approach to prosthetic digital technologies and the human subject. How do human and technology interact with each other? Come and join movLab#22, let’s experiment, bring your laptop and ideas.

movLab is a place for researching ways to digitize motion and the human body and to make the data accessible for further use in VR, gaming, stage performance or art. We are building sensors, writing code and explore new ways of moving.

At our community meetings we get together and experiment. Some of us may be trained professionals others are completely new to the field. You do not need to know or have anything to join us, apart from respect for the people around you. We embrace diversity in thoughts, bodies and looks! We take the unknown and unfamiliar as inspiration and as a challenge to rethink ourselves.

An especially warm welcome those who are often underrepresented in the tech domain!
