meat, metal and code, a term originally coined by Stelarc to identify the contemporary body, is the title of the exhibition paying homage to the pioneering artist and serving as a framework in which truth might be manifested: as an inevitable exchange between entities.
Whether at a micro level between microbes as showcased in the project Where do I end… and you begin? by Marisa Satsia, or at a macro level between humans and artificial intelligence systems as in the projects Divergences and Multi-Node Shell by Luca Pagan, new forms of exchange generate new information and thus new perspectives and interpretations of the truth.
By embracing these exchanges, the exhibition aims to foster an environment where truth can be explored and understood in diverse and dynamic ways.
