On or about the body

Kate Hartman creates objects that play with the relationship between humans and technology. During her sabbatical she explored how our bodies can be connected, extended, captured, and transformed using both traditional and digital tools. In this presentation she will address the nitty gritty of her prototyping processes as well as the learnings and outcomes of her physical and social experiments. Subjects include pinky fingers, porcupines, and human-machine romance. This presentation will be casual and conversational. The work discussed will be on view and she might make you do something fun with the person sitting next to you.
