Mapping Techno Sensitivities: Exploring Embodiment Metaphors as Organic Decaying Blob Forms explores the artists’ desires to erode the body-as-machine metaphor through dialogues filled with solidarity: dreaming, stumbling, failing, exploring together with a fellow disabled artist situated in a different geographic space, but with resonating concerns.
As disabled artists interfacing with the digital medium, they will be mapping out their technosensitivities: points of pleasure, pain, breaches and boundaries around technology. They explore embodiment metaphors that make more space for errors, breakdowns, sloppiness and erotic oozings through text, animation and music.
