Meta.Morf X – Digital Wild

Meta.Morf X – Digital Wild leaves the established narratives behind – instead bending and twisting our illusions about digital futures. The purposes of new technologies become twisted, and the obvious challenged. The rationale gets blurry, and we start to see the fascinating contour of a wild future we may be a part of. Outside of the accustomed perceptions, things quickly get wild and surreal – and kinky.

Today we create our technologies in a solutionist manner – neat, clean and ever efficient to serve a purpose. When we get instrumental, we get predictable. The smart algorithms and gadgets we so intimately engage with unfold a foreseeable and calculated reality.

About sixty years into the digital revolution, a predominant share of our global community is absorbed by the digital realm. It has become our new nature, increasingly intertwined with our bodies and environments. We are architects of artificial ecologies that extend our dreams and perception of reality into new and hybrid domains.

Critical discourse is of the essence in a world turned wired and virtual. What does it mean to be human in an era where we are creators of new and pristine worlds?

The Digital Wild exhibition and conference wish to challenge the mainstream debate and playfully present art practices and research that explore new and artificial ecologies with the potential to render our future excitingly unpredictable.

Meta.Morf X – The sixth Trondheim international biennale for art and technology – ventures into the digital wilderness where the foreseeable has escaped, where control is absent, and agendas, purposes, and occupations are progressively evasive.
