Abstract

This two year programme of performances, installations and seminars that I curated was informed by a specific research agenda: the highly topical isssue of repositioning the body at the centre of new and emerging digital interactions and arts practices. The programme itself represents the continuation and development of a strand of investigation central to my research - i.e. it addresses the potentially dehumanising effects of technological engagements and it looks at the historical fact that a gendered digital practice has formed the dominant discourses in the field. On this basis, the programme sought to interrogate those trends 1) by specifically privileging women's voices and art works and 2) by making the work accessible to a wide range of audiences. Over 70 events were presented ranging from installations to discussions, all informed by the imperative of understanding the human presence as the centre point of new developments and debating the issues of ‘mediated' versus ‘unmediated' experience.
