The Material : Art and Technology research group critically interrogates the environmental, social and political conditions of contemporary digital technologies via practice based art research.
The group draws its membership from the across the School of Art, Film and Media as well as from the wider University and across other institutions.
We're interested in working with artists and curators who are interrogating and utilising new technologies in experimental ways to develop critical and cutting edge practice research.
We're interested in critical responses to notions of post humanism, affect, algorithmic capital, AI, immersion, post-truth and control. We are also interested in research that explores the ecological impacts of digital technologies from a material and waste perspective
We support the development of symposia, live events, exhibitions, workshops and funding bids, that emerge from individual’s practices and shared concerns. The group organises the ongoing symposia series Fiction Machines.
