Haunted Machines
« on: June 20, 2017, 12:23:07 am »
Haunted Machines is a curatorial and research project by Natalie Kane and Tobias Revell exploring narratives of myth, magic and haunting around technology.

Haunted Machines are the curators of the 2017 edition of Impakt, a contemporary media and technology festival in Utrecht, NL. The festival theme, HAUNTED MACHINES & WICKED PROBLEMS, seeks to address the entangled complexities of contemporary technologies and social and cultural change. Through the framework of myth, magic and monsters, an international line-up of speakers, performers, thinkers, artists, designers and technologists will address how in magic, the spectacle is used to hide technical processes; in myth, how we build stories and narratives to culturally assimilate complex technologies; and how we use monsters to think about when things go wrong and people are hurt.
