Amber Platform/Body-Process Arts Association Istanbul

by admin / Wednesday, 5 November 2014 / Published in cooperation partner

Body-Process Arts Association (BIS) is an Istanbul based initiative that aims to explore artistic forms of expression at the conjunction of the body and the digital process. BIS aims to create an international discussion and production platform in its local on the conjunction of art and technology. The concept of body-process refers to the inevitable relation between the modern human body and technological processes and tools. Starting from the observation that new technologies increasingly manage practical and critical aspects of our lives such as communication, health and security, this concept orients itself to think about the fluid boundaries between body and technology and the consequences of their interaction.
Operating under the name Amber Platform, BIS organises the “amber Art and Technology Festival and Conference” annually to create a platform for exchanges, collaborations and discussions. It also produces international artistic research and creation projects. BIS’s long-term objective is to establish a permanent center for research and production.
