  • In the context of the Anthropocene, Post-Human and Post-Digital, technology in Art gains a complexity that goes beyond the exploration of its possibilities, involving other environmental and social concerns. From these discussions comes the proposal to build a triptych of works that incorporate current issues. In this sense, we present three works of Art-Technology, which propose to eliminate the use of commercial electricity or batteries, as well as the non-use of computers or digital processors in their structure. However, maintaining the interactivity of the human with the machine, brought by the digital revolution. Breath, Touch and Gesture form the triptych, in which each work explores a technological operating system, based on simplicity and transparency, so that it gains energy and life through contact with the human body, generating different poetics and symbologies
