Spread the word. On the first two weekends of September I will be running a project for artists supported by the Live Art Development Agency and ArtsAdmin*.

It's called WE ROBOT and will involve transforming ourselves into an amazing interconnection of robodolls, cyborgs and other things.

It is about the reluctant or passive situation many of us find ourselves in, having to configure ourselves around technologies not of our design. A place for reluctant transhumanists and reluctant cyborgs. 

We will be working with embodied practices and qualities of clunkiness and mundanity rather than high technology. So you don't need to be an AI or transhumanism enthusiast although all these are welcome along with people who don’t especially care about technology. 

The deadline for applications: 5pm, Monday 18 June

To find out more or apply check out the
Live Art Development Agency website. After completing a short online form you will be directed to Hanen, a chatbot, who will ask you some further questions about your relationships with technology and non-humans and what kind of cyborg you might want to be. 

Or you can just
chat with Hanen to find out more.



*Part of DIY 15 an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to take part in unusual training and professional development projects conceived and run by artists for artists.

Peers: Responsibility, Jealousy & Difference

Image: Tate n Lyle, Back Up (2018)
"A constellation. The competition.

I like using the word ‘peers’ more than ‘colleagues’ (we don’t necessarily work together) or ‘friends’ (we don’t have to like one another). Across our commonalities and differences, what are our responsibilities to our peers — to watch, to support, to share with, to forgive, to challenge? The current institutional landscape demands we compete for limited resources. What do I think they’ve got, that I don’t?

Rather than pretend or demand good will, this conversation is a space to attend to our entirely reasonable feelings of jealousy, frustration and bitterness. How do we deal with our negative feelings; and could we understand them to be a productive force not only in our own work, but in the wider scene as a whole?"



I'm also involved in this (this weekend)...
And this (same day as coffee morning)...
And I also recommend
