Desiring Machines at The Lock Up Newcastle for Critical Animals


Curated by Critical Animals as part of This Is Not Art Festival. The artists in Desiring Machines meditate on the traces of human experience in data, make human interventions into the realm of the machine and find ways in which technology aids social exchange. In doing so they convert the visual and technological effluvium that occupies our lives into material that encourages empathy and connection.

Featuring work from Tega Brain, Dylan Hammond, Victoria Hempstead, Kirsty Hulme, Ben Kolaitis, Down Joy Leong, Jake Moore, Sara Morawetz, Kate Vassalo & James Lieutenanat, and Alex White.
