‘subjectivity in screens’

Our beings and digital avatars are becoming one. The existential question about our relationship with technology is part of daily conversation, and it compels us all to consider these digital extensions to our personhood and the new 'spaces' we inhabit. Composer, Ruaidhri Mannion and critically-acclaimed visual artist, Chris Boyd are currently collaborating on internet video projects that explore themes of the self, digital avatars, and shadow-selves.

Chris Boyd is a British contemporary artist whose multi-media work is preoccupied with the interrelationships with technology and modes of Being. Boyd has shown work at a wide variety of galleries, events and venues, including Tate Online, FACT, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, The Lowry, Roundhouse, Urbis, Corsica Studios, The Bigger Picture with The Cornerhouse. Boyd’s has been hailed as “remarkarkable” and “a poet in a frenzy” by legendary film-maker Werner Herzog.
