Mind Machine in Kiasma Theater May 19-21, 2017

No longer do we simply try to enhance ourselves and compensate for our shortcomings through technology, now we entangle ourselves ever more firmly in the technical systems we build. Machines read and write us just as we read and write them. In our profoundly algorithmic culture, what is the degree of our cyborgness is the question, not whether we are cyborgs or not. In this multidisciplinary performance, words uttered in response to unspeakable videos are again translated into video and back in a seemingly endless intersemiotic loop.

Mind Machine is after the traces of a human-technological experience in this automated world.
