Aboagora 2013: The Human Machine

November 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

Aboagora 2013 discusses the complex relationships between man and machine. The human being itself can be viewed as a corporeal machine, an assemblage of forces, actions and mechanisms, from the optics of the eye to the processes of cognition. It is also possible to interpret the machine as an extension of human senses. The boundaries between man and machine can be blurred by using technological devices as integral parts of the human body. The theme ‘The Human Machine’ can also pay attention on all those practices that create humanness in a machine: How we assume machines to feel and think? What kind of personal qualities do they have? Machines have also served as the vehicles of human creativity, as tools but also as the expressions of abstract thoughts. Aboagora wishes to address this fascinating area that has been a fertile ground for artistic and scientific explorations during recent decades.
