Autonomous Sheep is a creative collective with artists working across diverse disciplines. United by a vision of a sustainable digital future, they employ multidisciplinary approaches, from interactive digital installations to 3D- printed ceramics. Together, they advocate for and mould a brighter, digital realm. The collective uses technology to mirror the intricacies of their physical reality. Leveraging emerging media as tools for artistic exploration, they scrutinise, satirise, extend and evaluate current social and environmental issues which ubiquitously impacts us all. The collective hopes not just to highlight humanity’s prevailing challenges, but also advocate for a better change towards a more inclusive tomorrow.
They will create an immersive exhibition combining digital interactive and physical sculptural installations. The works aim to bridge our tangible world with the digital, evoking deeper reflections on our networked realities. Complementary series of talks and workshops will guide the public and local community on a journey through learning and unlearning technology. By blending introspection with critical enquiry, they hope to spotlight the nuances of our technological habits, their societal implications, and inspire creative explorations. Attendees are invited to both enjoy and critically assess the role technology plays in our interconnected lives and broader society.
Alongside our installations, the collective plan to host talks by artists and researchers, delving into topics like algorithms’ role in social division. This aims to encourage public reflection on their relationship with technology. They’re also curating creative tech workshops for local children, calling for participatory action workshops. Furthermore, they will schedule live performances that blend dance, music, with generative AI, reflecting some of their collective members’ expertise.
