body>data>space presents: ROBOTS and AVATARS EXHIBITION @ FACT, Liverpool

Co-curated by body>data>space and FACT in the UK, Robots and Avatars is a major new exhibition showcasing the most exciting visions and innovations from international artists, designers and architects, exploring their impact on the future of work and play.

Come and discover how artists imagine our future relationships with robotic, avatar colleagues and playmates, and at what point does this evolution cross our personal boundaries of what it is to be a living, feeling human being.

This playful group show offers immersive experiences – from physical limbs rendered into pixels through the act of touch, collaborative landscapes stretching beyond the confines of popular gaming, to wearable and interactive technologies that guide and confound.

Robots and Avatars was conceived and produced by body>data>space through a participatory web, educational and events led programme in 2009 and evolves through European partnerships into this touring Exhibition.

The Robots and Avatars exhibition in the UK is co-produced in the UK by body>data>space (London) and FACT (Liverpool) in collaboration with the National Theatre (London). European co-organisers are KIBLA (Maribor/Slovenia) and AltArt (Cluj Napoca/Romania). With the support of the Culture programme of the European Union, this project was conceived by lead producer body>data>space in association with NESTA.
