As digital technologies shift and evolve, they open up new and increasingly complex interfaces with notions of identity and embodiment. In this way, the design language of media such as spam ad banners, laptop trackpads and voice assistants like Siri each betray underlying assumptions about the needs and desires of the user.

'Caressing the silver rectangle' brings together three artists who explore this space of encounter. Jesse Bowling, Louise Lever and Maddy Plimmer consider the embodied and gendered dynamics of the techno-cultural sphere, presenting works that play between intimacy and alienation.
