(DES)CONEXÃO 2.0 Disjecta membra
By artist collective wreading digits, in collaboration with media artist Pedro Ferreira, is a cyberpoetic artifact developed under the artistic residency “Realtime Runtime People”, promoted by the INVITRO-Gerador. Having its first instantiation [realtime], in July 2018, at Atelier Concorde Lisbon, as a #cyberpoetic installation complemented with #livecoding #liveremixing #performance, (DES)CONEXÃO is now presented at ARTEFACTO 2018, in a completely different way; without its digital component. The intention at stake here is to reinforce its initial questioning – a reflection on the ways technologies alter our perception of time –, by giving visibility and expressiveness to textual and poetic layers behind the surface of the artifact. In dissecting the machine and its fragmented layers of different data, certain experimental writing techniques used, that allow us to extend the word, and therefore the text, – such as combinatorics, literary cut-ups, or fold-ins – are cut wide open. Beyond the circular walls of this anatomical theatre, the remains of these mediated and transmutated philosophical stone(s), once modified, filtered, sublimated, multiplied, and sometimes even self-generated are revealed. In runtime.
wreading digits is a #visual #digital #experimental #transdisciplinary artist collective focused in the disruptive exploration of bridges between arts, curatorship and creative research. Their cyberliterary works were present in International Art Festivals, such as PLUNC 2015, ELO 2017, FOLIO 2017 and FILE 2017.
