Talk Talk Talk

BY ROBERT KETEYIAN
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 13, 2013

Robert Keteyian explores thought proccesses, and the we think and communicate. Everyone has different levels of auditory, kinesthetic, linguistic, and visual-spatial reasoning, which may account for difficulties in communication. By understanding these innate differences, we can become less judgemental and more accepting of one another.

Disabling Labelling

BY ANN HAWKINS
@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."

In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, October 15th, 2015.

What is the human? Imagining The Posthuman Self

BY ANATOL BOLOGAN
@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Exploring the confluence of the human body, science and technology
the focus of Anatol Bologan's art-based research is to develop a series of digital and interactive artworks that engage the viewer with the discourse of humanism versus technicism by immersing the viewers into a multisensory interactive space. Interdisciplinary at its core, the project engages scientific, medical and technology-based research and imaging in the fields of human anatomy, perception, neurology and computer science. It uses concepts of artificial intel¬ligence and medical imaging as source material for artwork that consists of digital images, sculptures and interactive installations. The digital paintings, interactive sculptures as well as the interactive installations explore the confluence of human body, science and technology to further enquire and attempt to answer the question: “What is the Human?”
