Human Interfaces is a research group whose dialogue centres around questions investigating the multiplicity of identity and what it means to be human. For many this is constructed through narratives, histories, and memories. These structures however are not taken for granted as complete or definitive – often it is the disruptions and slippages, the discomfort and unease, and how identities are renewed and shifted that are most important.
For group members, human interfaces are about the reciprocal relationships between communities and individuals, technologies and all species. The interface between people and the viewing screen and the expectations of the viewing public, between language, performance and sound, between power and empowerment, between nature and nurture.
Members intend to challenge the boundaries between representation and the ‘real’ world, and the space in-between. To this end, the group's current research explores: What does community mean in a post pandemic world especially the synergies or conflicts of hybridity in terms of the physical and digital spaces?
No, this infrastructure does not provide funding.
