*** Part of transmediale / Vorspiel 2022 ***
Mindaugas Gapševičius invites to take part in a participatory event “You and I, You and Me”. The installation and the participatory event explore the possibilities of communication through electricity. The project proposes that electricity could help to reveal the imperceptible connections between different actors within the environment. How far could electricity help in understanding the other? Is there a possibility to alter human senses by electric impulses?
The participatory event will take us to the future scenario, where humans, computing machines, and various hybrids share the space they inhabit. In this environment senses are altered, and some have inextricable linkage to computing devices. In this narrative, humans take responsibility to reshape social ties to avoid being controlled by corporations and machines.
Mindaugas Gapševičius explores the impact of non-human actors on human creativity and the impact of humans on the umwelt. Maria Safronova Wahlström is interested in social myths, and works with themes such as collective behaviour and linguistic practices that signal our social belonging.
