2011

In this Dorkbot "geeky but arty", we will tackle, beyond the technical implementation, the question of articulating the artistic discourse around technology. We will present pieces where the "hardware" is visible, integral part of the artwork itself, but not its main theme. With projects by Jasper Rigole, Gert Aertsen, Félix Luque and Jérôme Decock from the LAb[au] collective. [live streaming]

What happens when these artificial brains controlled by unknown forces try to liberate and when their web dialogues become absurd, entropic and uncontrollable? Félix Luque tells us the story of a computer which, after an electronic alteration, decides to free the other machines.
