Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art
Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art presents a diverse group of 17 artists and collectives who reimagine the digital tools shaping our lives. The exhibition includes projects spanning the last three decades, from software-based and internet art to animated videos, bioart experiments, digital games, and 3-D printed sculptures. Together, these works explore the aesthetic and social potential of emerging technologies and the essential question: What does it mean to live in a digital world? The 20 works on view in Difference Machines exemplify different strategies for adapting technology to artmaking. The artist A.M. Darke, for instance, explores through the video game genre how the perception of identity categories is shaped by society.
