What are the political, economic and social ramifications of a cultural bias inscribed in the technologies we live and interact with everyday?
We are told that these technologies are neutral and transparent, designed to satisfy each individual’s desires. What if those desires are outside the norms encoded in software, hardware and delivery systems?
Queer Technology responds to these questions and others by inviting Bay Area LGBTQ artists to critique the norms and values assumed by the techno-sphere. Artists Rudy Lemcke, Colleen Jenning, Kara Stone, Lark VCR, and Aaron Reed create games, augmented virtual reality artworks, sound and music, sculpture, internet-based, video and performance, exposing us to other possibilities.
