Join us for Project2501, an audiovisual live performance by Cibymili, created by artist Camila Roriz, on Wednesday 26 Feb at 5:30 at Titanik residency studio!
Cibymili is a digital avatar, who in this project is exported into physical space. The performance is a desire to unveil the constant and diverse concepts created by modern science to define a living being. Surrounded by images of the avatar’s universe, Cibymili recites lines from cyberpunk films. In the film, Ghost In The Shell, the cyborg Motoko questions itself about life-forms: “I am a living, thinking entity who was created in the sea of information.” Humans and machines are more alike than we realize; deformations, imperfections are part of the way of life for them both.
Camila Roriz is a Brazilian multimedia artist working in both physical and digital realms. One of her main interests is exploring how technology can be a visual translator of physical experiments. Inspired by scholars and sci-fi writers like Donna Haraway and Octavia Butler, her practice oscillates from painting to 3D and VR scenarios where she creates different characters and new worlds.
The residency is part of The Cyberpunk and Capitalist Realism Study Group’s visit at Titanik A.i.R. programme in February 2020. The CCRSG is a multi-disciplinary group of academics, students, activists, artists and musicians instigated by Carmen Schmöl at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Their goal is to examine the cultural significance of cyberpunk by paying special attention to the entanglement of space and identities in the sphere of postmodernism and capitalist realism. Three members of the group attend the Titanik A.i.R. programme in February 2020.
