Dear All,

Due to several people requesting extensions, the deadline 
for the Artificial A.gender? Exhibition has been extended
to the 25th October. 
 
ARTIFICIAL A.GENDER?  ONLINE EXHIBITION

 

The gendered machine… Will the human’s disposition for categorising things cause a binary split for the machine as well? Or will the merging of human and machine see a breakdown of gendered dichotomies? The gendered machine is closer to our hearts than we can imagine, physically we are already unconsciously becoming machines through pacemakers and tooth fillings; the constant shift between the two states of reality and virtual reality can either transcend the idea of the split between human/machine or forge a new class of categories that determines the gender of a machine.

 

We would like to see contributions: experimental e-poetry, new media art, digital video that takes the above ideas and to transform them into your own interpretation. 

 

Prizes will be awarded to first and second place, while the top ten will be showcased in an online exhibition.
