Feel welcome to hang out on the platform, log into the hotspots, peak into holes, lay upside down, browse through and buy books :-)
About the exhibition
On a daily basis our bodies are being scanned, tracked, debugged, rendered, manipulated, and categorized by different technologies. How are we, as users and makers, able to understand our bodies' relationships to these biometric computational processes?
Inefficient Tools for Quantified Beings is a process-driven exhibition curated by the Hackers & Designers collective (H&D), which investigates the intersection of technology and the agency of the (human, post-human, trans-human, non-human) body from a maker's perspective.
The featured artists are Nazanin Karimi, Thomas Rustemeyer, and The Underground Division (Helen Pritchard, Femke Snelting en Jara Rocha). Engaging with technologies such as scanners, geocomputation, and 3D modeling, the exhibited works problematize the role of the 'body' in computation. In collaboration with architectural designer Thomas Rustemeyer, H&D developed a support structure which hosts the works of the invited artists. The structure reflects the ways in which H&D functions as a community, a network, and an infrastructure. Different local networks function as a resource library in the exhibition.
