SNAP, in partnership with the University of Alberta Art and Design Graduate Students Association (ADGSA) presents a group exhibition that explores the ways digital, genetic and linguistic codes shape our bodies, subjectivities and interpersonal relations. The graduate students featured in this exhibition investigate the boundaries of coding processes to challenge the presumed stability and fixity of code. They exploit the glitches, interference and translation inherent in coding systems to generate new and often surprising results. This exhibition at SNAP features the work of numerous artists using a wide range of artistic disciplines.
The ways the in which we understand digital code resonates with how we think about our minds and bodies, especially in light of medical projects like genetic mapping and neuroimaging. These technologies have shaped a view of the body as living code: knowable, malleable and therefore controllable. Several works in the exhibition challenge the notion of a programmable body.
This complex negotiation between code and subject is carried through to artworks that address linguistic code—written, spoken and embodied—as a site of identity formation. Language shapes us and our social worlds. We speak, write, and gesture ourselves into existence.
Collectively, the artworks included in Encoding Identities traverse the ruptures, overlaps and blurred edges around systems of codification. From its function as a source material to its mediating influence in spectatorship, code is increasingly significant in the ways in which we conceptualize and construct identities. We form code, and are in turn formed by it.

I’ll be giving a brief presentation on my work at Hunter College on March 19th along with two other artists from 6-8pm.
I’ll be participating in this years Theorizing the Web conference with a plethora of like minded individuals at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York.
Society has been infiltrated by new digital technologies with potentially profound consequences. It makes sense to ask what’s changed? How has it changed? How much? Researchers and companies have gathered enormous amounts of data to ostensibly answer these questions, but the full implications of this data too often go unexplored. The Web is not a new, separate sphere, but part of the same social reality about which critical social theorists have produced several centuries worth of insight. These theories may be profitably used, tweaked, or even abandoned in light of contemporary realities. What previous theoretical tools help us understand these changes? What new theories should be created?
The Theorizing the Web conference seeks to bring together an inter/non-disciplinary group of scholars, journalists, artists, and commentators to theorize the Web. As in the past, we encourage interrogations of power, social inequality, and social justice; intersections of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation, and disability will be woven throughout the conference.
