Big Brothers and Sisters, on a concept by Victor X

Curated by Catalysti Association of Transcultural Artists ry 

“It doesn’t have to be limited by Orwell’s horrors. The AI is coming into our lives slowly but surely. It is adding something substantially new. Watch our kids talking to their Siris and Alices, this is a brave new world” (Victor X)

At the programme two performances, about Artificial Intelligence and its many implications in nowadays world: 

MIRROR, MIRROR SEES THEM ALL, installation-performance by Nadja Pärssinen (dance and choreography), Roberto Pugliese (sound, live visuals and interaction) and Virpi Velin (photography and choreography).

Mirror, mirror sees them all is a reflection upon the representation of ourselves through images in social media; the amplification and distortion of identities. It looks at the process of being a user of and participant in social media and the ways it reflects selves and transforms identity structures.

The performance installation consists of small moving mirrors, projected images and light. The dancer and the photographer move interactively with each other and with the installation. The interaction between the movements of the dancer, the movements of the photographer and the light reflected by mirrors, create a kaleidoscopic and intuitive tactile-visual narrative.

RED ROOM Live sound theater performance. 

Concept and performance, Jaap Klevering.

As it turns out, an Artificial Intelligence translator tool has a mind of its own. It translates what it hears without questioning accuracy or meaning. Its hilarious mistakes and misinterpretations make it a creative tool for improvisation. It changes the intentions and meaning of the spoken word into a new layer of reality that could not otherwise exist. The result is humorous, confusing and questionable. If this kind of intelligence effects daily communication and would eventually develop free will, human creativity becomes challenged in unpredicted ways. 

It will be in both English and Finnish.
