Call for Submissions: All watched over by machines of loving grace

  • Location: InterAccess, Toronto
  • Deadline: Sep 18 2023 at 12:00PM

Curated by Gladys Lou, the 2023 IA Current exhibition, All watched over by machines of loving grace, will explore how human-computer interaction has transformed the meaning of love and romance in the digital age. It considers the evolving shapes and forms that intimate relationships can take in the virtual sphere, and how technology has liberated non-heteronormative identities by enabling representation of self beyond the binaries. The exhibition asks the audience what makes love real: the lover, the loved one, or the medium by which love is conveyed? 

A call for submissions is now open for new media works that reflect different perspectives and experiences on forming romantic and platonic relationships digitally through video, sound, animation, AR/VR, digital games, web-based projects, projection mapping, immersive installations, and performances. We are seeking submissions that explore digital dependency on relationships, the commodification of bodies, queer codes and flagging, and other ways that technology can be drawn upon as a medium for humans to establish authentic relationships with one another.
