amber'09 Art and Technology Festival
6-15 November 2009
(un)Cyborgable?



call for artworks:
submit your work to http://submissions.a-m-b-e-r.org

amberFestival is interested in interactive installations that explore the theme of "(un)Cyborgable" in today's world.
We see the theme as a tool to think and work with, and the festival as an opportunity to raise an artistic voice. You alone will define that voice. We also encourage outdoor interactive installations all over Istanbul.


the theme:
(un)Cyborgable?

Living in a technologically-mediated environment causes changes and shifts in human habits, postures and behaviors. Technologies have an impact on our perceptions; each new technology demands new practices of body and speech as well as a new comprehension of time and space.


The notion of the cyborg (cybernetic organism) explores the literal and figurative integrations of the human body and technology. A hybrid concept, cyborg links the organic and non-organic and raises questions concerning human corporeality and subjectivity. In the same vein, the field of Art and Technology also elaborates on the transforming and emerging human and addresses the questions of who or what we may become as a result of our increasing engagements with technology.


Based on the recent technological developments and their incorporation in the social, cultural, and political domains, amber’09 explores the consequences of exposing and augmenting our bodies with digital technologies. It aims to elaborate on the body and its relationships in the social and cultural domains, the asymmetrical structures and practices inherent to contemporary societies and the possibilities to break these asymmetries in order to achieve a free and equal society.


Re-visiting and re-thinking the notion of the cyborg, amber'09 asks: Are you (un)Cyborgable?

WE LIVE WITHIN AN UNSTABLE LANDSCAPE

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.

We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary  community interacting and embedded  unstablelandscape.

This network is maintained and administrated by Marlon Barrios Solano as an independent art/curatorial/social innovation project.
