Call for Videos: Intimate Technology

May 23rd 2017

Technology is coming closer to us, it colonizes our bodies and identity. It has always been a part of our lives, and our attachment to it seems to grow every day. We are pleased to announce that NNN will curate the One Minutes series for September 2017. Under the theme 'Intimate Technology', we are calling on film makers, students, artists, enthusiasts, technology experts, dancers, choreographers, professionals critics and basically everyone who wants to share a one minute video with us.

Technology is becoming more and more intimate as it nestles itself within us and between us, and can even act just like us. Intimate technologies promise humans new opportunities for personal and social development, putting the integrity of the body and the soul at stake. Driven by the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive technology, such advancements have changed our relationship with bodies, environment and sexuality. How far do we allow technology to go? And how close to the skin can it get?

Submit your one minute long on www.theoneminutes.org/participate before July 15th. The selected films will be internationally screened and featured on nextnature.net.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
