Rescheduled Performance | "She who dances with the drone"
Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The installation consists of performative and interactive elements with features of an intervention. It utilizes New Media to allow for a controversial reflection. The issue of consumption and the product „New Media“, that originates from it, are negotiated in a deliberately complex and ambivalent manner thus to outline the arising problems.
Until now we have celebrated the achievements and advantages of new media without any reservation. But we have to realise step by step that they change people’s reality towards the unreal shadows of Plato’s Cave Allegory. Therefore the artists performatively read the Cave Allegory for 8 hours on 7 days and put up for discussion the surprisingly up-to-date critique of media and man, which shows up if one looks behind the seducing beauty of the new media.
