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]


Félix comes back at iMAL for the production of a second dodecaheder that will tour french festivals, such as VIA and EXIT. The installation will be then shown at Le Cube (France) and at BÒLIT (Spain). 


Are computers becoming intelligent entities, but mad ones all talking together and overflowing us with spams? 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.


Chapter I invites us to discover a mysterious object, an unidentified artificial entity as real than fictional. Félix Luque's installation reformulates some modern philosophical questions about mankind and technology through the use of images associated with science fiction culture and myths around artificial intelligence.


In the context of Transmediale festival in Berlin, Wallonia Brussels International organises an exhibition showing pieces by 3 Brussels-based artists: Felix Luque, Julien Maire and LAb[au].

iMAL is very happy to be associated with this event as the co-producers of Julien's new work Composite as well as Felix's installations D.W.I. and Memory Lane.
