    Hack the Body

    What does the increased and shared intimacy between technology and our body mean? What do we gain by capturing, saving and sharing all?

    Technology is rapidly nesting itself in between us, very close to us and even within us, increasingly coming to know us and even receiving human traits. Gathering our intimate data influences our behavour and the way we relate to our bodies, our lives, and the world around us. Now we can look at ourselves as a set of ‘objective’ raw data and technology becomes more like us. However advanced and glorious this may seem, the question remains: What does this increased and shared intimacy between technology and our body mean? What do we gain by capturing, saving and sharing all? And equally important, what do we lose?

    Hack the Body brings together artistic projects sharing the same underlying idea: using new sensor and information technology to explore innovative concepts within biometric measurement, neuro-feedback and data generation. Speakers include, among others: Chris SalterMarco Donnarumma; and Lancel & Maat.

    Big, Open adn Beautiful is a series of events about open and big data. The 9th evening focusus on the Hack the Body program. Partners of the series are: Pakhuis de Zwijger; Waag Society; Rathenau Instituut; We Are Data Mirror Room; and Europe by People.
