Crossing Wires: Technology and Play Conference

http://fasttalkthemovie.com/

February 19 to April 15, 2012

Technology has traditionally been used to make what functions function faster, easier and more efficiently. We expect computers, robots and machines to continue to take over the performance of chores and ramp up the production of goods. But what happens when technology is used for the non-functional, to make what is functional less functional? What happens when technology, especially high technology, is used for art or for play?

In organizing an exhibition based on technology, we’re looking for artists who subvert the functional or fabricate the handmade. We’re particularly interested in work that expands upon or pushes against traditional definitions of art, and investigates the relationship between technology and play.

Installation, screen based and/or digital projection projects, music/sound devices, and other media will be considered. Any robots out there?

Curators: Barbara Blades and Debra Tolchinsky

the hive: Bender II

What none of them could figure out was how he had gotten into the apartment. Even he was vague on the details, insisting that he had come in through a locked window a good eight feet above the ground. Still, the fact remained that sometime in the wee hours of the morning, he had appeared in the wrong bed, sending its rightful occupant shuffling through the hallway and out to the refuge of the couch.

His phone had vanished at some point in the evening’s revelry, the only clue to its whereabouts a series of charges for calls made to Paraguay near dawn on a Sunday. The Polaroids, however, were intact, a linear series of snapshots that gave structure and meaning to the blurred thread of a memory that formed the foundation of his tale of mirth and woe: himself, the quixotic hero adventuring on the high seas of Wicker Park, consorting with the locals and ultimately triumphing over a misdirected cabby and a slumbering, fastened garden apartment.
