As part of FAB19 - Fringe Arts Bath, we are curating a show called 'The Workshop' and are looking for artists to respond to the theme of mankind's continuing relationship with technology. We are looking for a wide range of submissions from the kitsch to experimental. All art forms will be considered.

For The Workshop I am interested in works that portray the relationships we have with machines, from the cloying devotion to personal machines, where phones become as important to us as cherished pets or beloved family members, to the fear of what the future holds for humans as machines take over and humans end up redundant. Are we sacrificing our humanity and becoming part human, part computer hybrids? Are there good machines and bad machines; is a washing machine or a hairdryer benign and a super computer or a gun evil? How much control do we really have over machines we have invented and built?
