Returning for a fourth year, ArtTechPsyche celebrates human expression at the intersection of technology and the arts. This annual symposium run by Harvard’s Digital Futures Consortium is a unique collaboration between Harvard Arts and Humanities Research Computing (DARTH), the Harvard Library, and Arts @ 29 Garden. We invite you to join us on Friday, March 30, 2018 at Arts @ 29 Garden.
Explore the creative process and its impact on emerging technologies. Discover the ways in which technology shapes us, and conversely, how the artist continually challenges and informs technological development. Interact with cutting edge art installations and software demos to experience the world in new ways. Meet like-minded faculty, staff, students, researchers, and colleagues of any skill level while exploring new projects and collaborations on and around campus.
My talk: STARTING OUT BREATHING SLOWLY
Breathing matters. The experience of breathing in and breathing out prepare us for moments in life. The life-supporting, all the spontaneous and involuntary actions that undertaken every moment shape our unconscious mind-body relations. My work pays close attention to our shared experiences and the interdependence of psychological, emotional, cultural, and perceptual actions. In the rise of qualified self, our basic activities have become sites for monitoring and improvement. On our expedition beyond the earthbound, our bodies are re-designed and instrumentalized. Facing a more measurable and manageable future, are we lost in the schemes of control and governance? In this talk, I try to bring light back to the sensitivity of self, staring out breathing slowly.
