MAKERsHOUSE 2021 – «There is nothing wrong with loving something you can’t hold in your hand»
The MAKERsHOUSE Residency Programme of Youth Makerspace Larnaka is back for a 3rd consecutive year, aiming to empower the artistic community, to support artistic production and promote research and innovation through offering its premises, equipment and services.
Our first resident artist in 2021 Michalis Charalambous, in cooperation with his mentor Kyriakos Kosta, discovers how technology and artificial intelligence have been embedded in our daily life in various ways, either in the form of smart technology or through videogames and coding.
The exhibition “There is nothing wrong with loving something you can’t hold in your hand” was inspired by N. Kathrine Hayles’ book “How we became Post Humans/Virtual Bodies in Cybernetics” (1999). The exhibition illustrates how the perceptions of the notion of human have been fundamentally transformed in the last quarter of the 20th century, and presents the significant material and virtual concepts in the modern technological and scientific contexts.
The fear of postmortem existence reappears through the angle of technology and digital practices. Michalis Charalambous reexamines the boundaries between physical and digital environments, and the problematic practices which derive from human history. On this narrative, he creates a visual installation of printed digital photographs, ceramics and 3D prints.
