In deze “geeky but arty” Dorkbot zullen we, los van de technische implementatie, de vraag behandelen over de uiting van het artistieke discours rond technologie. We zullen werken voorstellen waar hardware wel een zichtbaar, integraal deel is van het kunstwerk, maar niet het hoofdthema. Met Jasper Rigole, Gert Aertsen, Félix Luque en Jérôme Decock van het collectief LAb[au]. [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). 


Worden computers intelligente, licht gestoorde, door elkaar pratende wezens die ons overspoelen met spam? Wat gebeurt er wanneer deze kunstmatige hersenen, gecontroleerd door onbekende krachten, proberen te ontsnappen, en wanneer hun web-dialogen absurd, entropisch en oncontroleerbaar worden? Félix Luque vertelt ons het verhaal van een computer die na een elektronische wijziging besluit de andere machines te bevrijden


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.
