Far-Flung’s future is a media-performance-installation that investigates different aspects of the human-computer relationship and draws its choreography from real-time data. Movements performed live as well as computer-generated video, light, and audio are influenced by the same data structures: Physical circumstances, such as weather conditions and times of day in cities around the world, transform the theatre space from one moment to the other. The overall structure of the performance is informed by coincidence, dividing the sequence of the work into unpredictable episodes (acts) of “on” and “off”.
*SOCIAL GLITCH, a project by the Kunstraum Niederösterreich explores the aesthetic of error. Codes inform society, the economy, law, and politics. They facilitate social practices of digital communication and choreograph their surveillance at the same time. Their operations, however, are subject to the contingency of unexpected malfunctions. In a technological context these defects are referred to as “glitches”. While the glitch typically remained intrinsic to media in the past, today its “peaks” increasingly cross over into societal realms – and with far-reaching social consequences. WUK performing arts presents two works in the framework of SOCIAL GLITCH.
