We interact with technology constantly, and for some reason, we’re led to believe that technology is neutral and unbiased. But is that true? For Berkeley Art Center’s new exhibit, Queer Technology, curator Elliot Anderson posed questions to Bay Area LGBTQ artists regarding our relationships with technology, the potential cultural biases embedded in technology, and the political, economic, and social ramifications of such biases. In response, artists created tech-fueled works, such as video, games, augmented virtual reality, sonic art, internet-based pieces, and performance. Participants include Rudy Lemcke, Colleen Jennings, Kara Stone, and Aaron Reed, most of whom already specialize in designing video games or making multimedia works beyond this exhibit. Oakland’s Lark VCR (VCR stands for Virtually Conflicted Reality), for example, has produced many projects dealing with the melting wall between body and machine through video installations and games.
