NODE+CODE #7 – Max Dovey - 19. Oktober 2015

In the aftermath of NODE15, we will continue the conversation about the role of the body in human-machine interaction. In discussion with Max Dovey, we will analyse which body image is being used and assumed in modern image recognition technology, its decision making processes and agency in the formation of ideas on the human body.

Max Dovey [UK] is 28.3% man, 14.1% artist and 8.4% successful. His performances confront how computers, software and data affect the human condition. Specifically he is interested in how the meritocracy of neo-liberal ideology is embedded in technology and digital culture. He holds a BA Hons in Fine Art: Time Based Media and a MA (MDes) in Media Design from Piet Zwart Institute. His research is in liveness and real-time computation in performance and theatre. He works as a producer and creative technologist for live events and theatre in both The Netherlands and U.K.

From his recently finished residency at V2, netherlands, he sends this report about "A Hipster Bar"

Also here is a great interview with him:
