As we enter an era where humanness is becoming an antiquated consideration, what will humanism be in the future of cybernetics, networked communications, artificial media saturation and synthetic biology? Post-Human//Future Tense explores this concept through the lens of current graduate students, a contingent who has the unique experience of developing their craft alongside the current technological push. Through the exploration of where technological advancements and digital progress will take society, Post-Human//Future Tense awakens a deeper understanding of what it means to be alive today.

 

Post-Human//Future Tense features multi-disciplinary and new media works created by national and international graduate students. In addition, new works of scholarship by notable academics in the field will be presented at the opening reception.

 

Curated by Victoria Eleanor Bradford, Michelle Graves, Nicolas Ruley and Nicholas Sagan, graduate students in the Interdisciplinary Arts Department of Columbia College Chicago.
