Performances: Wed 15.02. at 18, Thu 16.02. at 18, Fri 17.02. at 18, Sat 18.02. at 13.

Ex Machina is a dialogue between human and algorithmic authorship and interpretation. The work presents the interpretative possibilities of speculative notations through movement and sound. In the work created for the Kuva/Tila exhibition space, the speculative notations created by artificial intelligence are shaped into an installation and performance through research, interpretation and imagination. The nature of synthetic and organic, mechanical and human is sought to be understood and structured in new ways.

Simone Weber: Melting Eyes

Performances: Sat 11.02. at 18, Sun 12.02. at 18.

“Melting Eyes” is a multimedia performance that explores the binaries of nature & culture, body & technologies,human & material, natural & artificial, emotionality & frigidity. Inspired by more-than-human nature and in dialogue with different materialities like soil and the space, an assemblage of movement, moving image, technology (screens) and sound form a landscape in which the body oscillates between theatricality, literality and abstraction.

“Melting Eyes” was made as sequel of my Kuvan Kevät graduation work “reverberation”. Both of works are installations of potential performative situations which are created by staging actions and materials that imply certain activation. Both works leave a landscape of leftovers, past sound and vibration, or broken drum sticks, geology of sand and soil, misplaced television screens.
