Abstract

'Technology Is Not Neutral" was a major new touring exhibition of digital works by leading pioneering and contemporary female digital artists. From drone choreography, sequencing of bacteria and brainwave art to hacking reality, social media activism and telepresence, this exhibition highlights the contribution of female artists in shaping what digital art is today. The title of the show refers to the challenges faced by female artists in this field where they are often under-represented and less acknowledged than their male colleagues.

The exhibition features existing and newly commissioned artworks by Ghislaine Boddington (body>data>space), Susan Collins, Laura Dekker, Anna Dumitriu, Bhavani Esapathi, Julie Freeman, Kate Genevieve, Sue Gollifer, Luciana Haill, Nina Kov, and Gordana Novakovic.

As part of the exhibition, Ghislaine Boddington presents pictures from skintouchfeel (shinkansen and body>data>space). A series of works, evolving and re-iterating themselves between 1999 and 2004, skintouchfeel emerged from a series of dance-tech workshops “CellBytes” and other creative gatherings directed by Ghislaine Boddington across this time period and earlier in London, Lisbon and Arizona.

These images were taken from several public performances simultaneously held in 2 to 3 venues. Combining live sound, video and dance in structured improvisation, these performances explored and portrayed tele-intuition and digital intimacy to the watching public.

The exhibition premiered at Phoenix Brighton as part of Brighton Digital Festival 2016 (2nd September – 25th September 2016) then toured to Watermans Arts Centre in London (November 4th 2016 to January 8th 2017) accompanied by a major symposium.

The exhibition was funded by Arts Council England, The Computer Arts Society, and UCL Department of Computer Science and supported by Women Shift Digital, Phoenix Brighton and Watermans.
