⏧ American Cyborg

We are an artist collective headquartered in New York City, exploring the relationship of humans to machines and animals. Our name and core philosophy comes from Donna Haraway's A Cyborg Manifesto. Our flag represents the three rivers of Pittsburgh – where our founders met, and the circuit diagram symbol for the transistor – the building block of electronics. The colors are pastels of Red Ochre and Ultramarine Blue, representing the spectrum of earthly to ethereal pigments.

☍ Peridot Green

Each season we host an art salon, inspired by Gertrude Stein. We choose a theme, select pieces from our community of artists, and write a catalog to incorporate our ideas with the work. We share food, drink, and conversation in a warm and personal space.

In our monthly blog, we take turns examining themes relevant to cyborg living. We employ fiction, non-fiction, code, music; varying strategies.
