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

Our Minecraft world, Cyborgia, adopts the principles of Christopher Alexander; The Timeless Way of Building and A Pattern Language. We're not creating pretty facades, we're collaborating with the mechanics of the game and environment to develop spaces that improve gameplay.

All summer we take roadtrips around the country; Seaglass is our vagabond quartet. We're assembling a database of photos, novels, folk music, and statewise experiences.
