Creatures and their Creators
Monsters can be read as signals and warnings, drawing attention to that which disturbs the boundary of communal and societal norms. Looking at the context of the monster and its relationship to technology and culture, this talk will explore the haunted realms and unsettling creatures that lurk amongst technoscientific advancements and research. We will also explore what creates a monster and who or what can be held accountable for them.

Lyndsey Walsh is an American artist, writer, and researcher based in Berlin, DE. Lyndsey is enthralled by the ruptures in the corporeality of culture caused by technology. They are also fixated on the creatures that are born from these ruptures, as they embody both collective cultural fears and technologically mediated desires. Lyndsey’s practice employs queer and intersectional feminist frameworks to question the tensions that can exist surrounding these creatures whose very existence resists cultural and anthropocentric binaries of human-non-human, diseased-healthy, and life-machine.
