Cyberbodies & Code as Form at Art House, 2017–18

October 20, 2017 – October 12, 2018

Cyberbodies explores the ways in which emerging technologies extend, distort, and disrupt how bodies—especially women’s—are viewed as objects of desire in digital culture. The technologies include interactive videodisc and touchscreen, a pre-internet Minitel system, and customized generative software. On view are works by Lynn Hershman Leeson, Eduardo Kac, and Ken Knowlton and Leon Harmon (Experiments in Art and Technology).

Code as Form is a presentation of visual, optical, and abstract art generated from biometric data, acoustic signals, music and Morse Code, revealing data itself to be a wellspring of artistic forms. Works by Guillermo Galindo, video art pioneers Beryl Korot and Steina Vasulka, Brigitte Kowanz, Vera Molnar, and Laura Splan are included.
