HARDWired aims to create a space that invites visitors to ponder the role of technology in altering our shared human experience and how it can influence a shift in our social and political landscape. Through immersive artworks, talks, and workshops, the exhibition challenges intuitive perceptions of technology as inherently rational and logical, exploring the affective undercurrents that drive the use of technology as tools that purposefully target and shape our emotions, relationships, society, and politics.

Through immersive artworks, talks, and workshops, HARDWired becomes a space that invites visitors to ponder the dualistic use of technology and reflect on its role in altering our shared human experience and shifting our social and political landscape. On one hand, new mediums have transformed social interactions, unlocking new levels of interconnectedness and collaboration. But they have also heightened social and political anxieties; at times becoming tools that purposefully target and shape our affective responses.

About the Collective / Curators
Autonomous Sheep is a London-based collective of artists hailing from diverse cultural and disciplinary backgrounds. Our aim is to critically engage with new technologies and invite visitors to investigate how technology has intricately rewired our emotions and feelings, engage with its social and political influence, and optimistically explore technology’s potential to cultivate alternative ways of communication and collective creation.
