5uuoPRPPW%A% with DOES work ('Why am I always hot?') gtxdlr & Laura Rigau ('Memory Bleach') y ¥€$Si PERSE ('Xenomilitia: The Antifa Chronicles')
On Saturday afternoon, Stage+D will host three unique audiovisual projects from some of Barcelona’s most talented AV artists, entitled ‘5uuoPRPPW%A%’, a reference to the passwords and encryption keys we use to protect and secure our online identities.
The result is a three-part story about perception, identity and technologies of control. In "Why am I always hot?" DOES employs surveillance technologies and infrared cameras to record everyday actions with sound produced by SN Systema, while in Memory Bleach, gtxdlr & Laura Rigau use test versions of AI tools to explore consciousness and perceptual biases. Finally, YESSi PERSE’s Xenomilitia: The Antifa Chronicles, documents a battle fought between fascists and a xeno-queer terrorist antifa militia, presented in the form of a video game, with the help of tech artist Shell Ocean.
Xenomilitia: The Antifa Chronicles was commissioned and produced by the Athens Biennale and Sónar+D 2022
