Conference

Eyelid Screen is a series of three activities that aim to reflect on the conditioning that exists between technological devices and perception. The sessions aim to be a space to obturate the gaze, a blinking aimed at seeking a critical distance and opening up possibilities in the links we establish with new technologies.

From optical devices to virtual environments, how do technological devices respond to and influence the characteristics of human perception? How might a particular conception of what constitutes experience have neglected more concrete, individual sensations? And how does this generic, uncosified understanding of the world limit awareness of one’s senses? Does this affect the ability to imagine possible relationships with digital technologies? What parts of experience do we tend to overlook when we refer to these kinds of technologies?
