BIS (Body Process arts Association) also known as amberPlatform is an Istanbul based association that aims to explore artistic forms of expression at the conjunction of the body and the digital process. BIS aims to create an international discussion and production platform in its local on the conjunction of art and technology in general.
The concept of body-process refers to the inevitable relation between the modern human and technological processes and tools. Starting from the observation that new technologies increasingly manage practical and critical aspects of our lives such as communication, health and security, this concept orients itself to think about the fluid boundaries between body and technology and the consequences of their interaction.
amberPlatform organizes "amber Art and Technology Festival" annually, directs international artistic research and creation projects. amberPlatform focuses on creating a community of research, creation, production and education in the junction of art, technology and thought. Simultaneously, amberPlatform seeks to create an international network of artists, researchers and technicians with whom it would collaborate in a spirit of cooperation and exchange. It thus aims to participate in universal art from a local and regional perspective. amberPlatform prioritizes new openings in the field of art and technology that is brought on by cultural exchange and cooperation projects that also include artists and initiatives that are not part of the Global art circuits.
