Kevin LeGrandeur: How Lee Adler's Art Anticipates the Bonding of Human and Machine in the 21st Century.

Today, modifying humans with various types of technology is increasingly common. We have implantable defibrillators and pacemakers for heart patients, and Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) that can help paralyzed people control prosthetics with their thoughts or, conversely, help control unwanted brain activity like seizures and tremors. There are also artists who incorporate technology into their art. This talk will show how Lee Adler’s art anticipated and participated in the cultural spirit that led to an increasingly common blending of human and machine.

Dr. Kevin LaGrandeur is Professor at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), where he specializes in technology and culture. He is also a Fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology, an international think tank, and a co-founder of the New York Posthuman Research Group.
