Many would argue that technology has become the primary agent of contemporary existence, and is experienced as our dominant culture as it becomes increasingly operative in every aspect of life. Digital artists that work with the perennial subject of the human form have a more immediate awareness of the relation between technology and the human body as they become further immersed in the use of advanced technologies in the production of art.
In an era where technological innovations are appearing at an ever increasing pace the future of the human body is thrown into question. Art that makes its business keeping up with emerging technologies becomes an important arena to consider the outcomes of these advances. In "The Technologized Body" we sought to bring together a diverse range of work that explores the interface between human tools and the human form as it reverberates ever more powerfully throughout international culture.
Gallery information: LACDA is dedicated to the propagation of all forms of digital art, supporting local, international, emerging and established artists. We have an ongoing schedule of exhibits and competitions, and produce editions of wide format archival prints.
