The performance is based on the interaction between media artists, dancers, sound and the gallery space. It problematizes the presupposed neutrality of the “white cube,” while critically commenting on both the modernist myth of abstraction and the “perfection” of a perpetually optimized technology. The idea of error is translated into the subjectivization of technology through moving bodies augmented with webcams, now turned effectively into interfaces. A video layer, processed in real time is integrated into an iconic painterly abstraction, covering the space of the gallery.
The project is part of the series “Spaces Alive. Bucharest Surreal”, produced by AVmotional Platform, conceived and presented in 2017 at different locations in the city of Bucharest. 0FF8N0FF is part of the Ars Electronica Festival 2018: ERROR – the Art of Imperfection. More info at Spații Vii.
For reasons of space, each performance is limited to 45 visitors.
