What's it all about?

As their complexity increases, the objects of technology that we use everyday become more and more mystifying to the average user. Most of us are able to competently operate our cellphones or computers, however much less are able to confidently explain how or why a given piece of technology works. With a focus on the intersection of technology and art, guest presenters will be arts practitioners who utilise technology in their art practice. This will appeal to students of visual arts, but also to public who are interested in the social and artistic aspects of technology more generally.

This workshop is the first in the series of Technological Object Seminars that will form part of Aotearoa Digital Arts Network's 2021-22 program, Indeterminate Infrastructures: Objects, Signals & Architectures. The next five workshops will be held in centres around the lower North Island. ADA plans to extend these seminars to centres in other regions beyond 2022.

Aotearoa Digital Arts is a network researching the expanded field around media, new media, electronic and digital art. The ADA Network enables communication between artists, curators, teachers, critics, theorists, writers and the interested public. ADA develops public understanding of digital art through its online forum, through publications and exhibitions, and by touring speakers, holding master classes and symposia. http://www.ada.net.nz/about/about-aotearoa-digital-arts/
