Art that examines technology invites a wide, with works are often interactive, topical, playful, and unpredictable. But sometimes it receives the criticism of being confounding, inelegant, or even ‘not art’. Why? Does it hit too close to home? Does it make us aware of our vulnerabilities as humans, or our fragile sense of control, perhaps? Self-reflection can be uncomfortable, but questioning our use of technology is crucial if we truly want to advance our quality of life; art is an important space where this can happen. Each of the fourteen artists in this exhibition explores the societal and ethical implications of technology in an effort to reflect upon and promote a humane approach to social progress and innovation.
