Bleeding Edge New Media Exhibit March 4-May 15 ~Peeksill~
Bleeding Edge investigates human-technological entanglements specifically how global networks have affected the ways in which we express intimacy, identity, and history, focusing on moments where technology fails to keep up with the complexities of the lived human experience. Using metaphor as well as formal means, these eight artists appropriate, subvert, and exploit the nuances of consumer technology, recognizing the tenuous line between emancipatory cyber-utopia and omnipresent corporate surveillance as a necessary site for artistic intervention and play. Bleeding Edge takes its title from an industry term referring to technology so innovative it comes with incredible risk and an alarmingly high rate of failure.
