OPEN SITE 6 | Open Call Program【Exhibition】
Virtual assistants manage our lives, and robots pretend to be friends. Totemism, idolatry, and fetishism – through these, we attempt to solve our ultimate loneliness in the galaxy. Digital portraits that embed an organic male gaze into robots modelled after young women critique the subtle takeover of society by patriarchal surveillance in the form of quasi-feminine technologies. Chatbots and holographic characters offer problematic glimpses of a futuristic work-life fantasy.

Shiho Fukuhara is engaged in developing new technology and platforms to integrate intelligence into our everyday things, with the purpose of investigating how creations with technology and traditional crafts critically reflect our consciousness of physicality, aesthetics, materiality.

In 2004, she established Biopresence Ltd. in London with Georg Tremmel and they formed BCL, an artistic research framework, in 2007.
