This fall, Station Gallery partners with UOIT’s Decimal Lab to expand dialogues around motives of wearable technology. Through this group exhibition, we can discover a body that is constantly negotiating demands made by technology – both humanizing and dehumanizing. Wear Me imagines devices and gadgets as agents in dialogue with the human subject/body. It will probe relationships between the two such as advancement, collaboration, co-sensing, friendship, imprisonment, nostalgia, parasitism, play, surveillance, interdependence and many more. This display will imagine humans and wearable components contextualized within physical, social, political, and phenomenological networks rather than in isolated subjectivity. The intent is to incite artistic exploration through provocative, playful or challenging contributions.
