Digi-Fears Part II: Help! Evil Digital Forces Are Trying To Control My Messy Body!

26 September 2015
2:00 pm
4:30 pm

Free

Join artists Lorenza Ippolito and CiCi Blumstein plus guest speakers and artists, including Rich Plastow (founder of Loop.Coop), Sam Watts (3D Producer at MakeMedia), Xel’ís de Toro (performance artist & poet to explore gaming) and Rosa Emerald Fox (director, CodeBar Brighton & She Codes Brighton) to explore gaming SeriousPlay, binary thinking, performative embodiment, 3-D printing, the digitisation of nature and the body, and whatever else might spill out of the OH-ONE box…

Is contemporary gaming the new frontier in imagining a world after climate change? Will it help us understand – or even tackle – the complex nature of our impact on the planet? Or are gaming and the digital just distractions from a harsh reality?

For this second event at ONCA Gallery, we are going to take the discussion a step further, into performance, installation and artist conversation.

Picking up from Ken Eklund’s work such as World Without Oil and Future Coast we will delve deeper

into what it means to negotiate our messy organic existence as humans and an emerging digital reality.
