Technology is evolving at lightning speed, new media have slipped into our daily lives inconspicuously. Do we sufficiently question this self-evidence? Do we experience reality other than virtual? Where is the boundary between the two? What is (the power of) a computer algorithm? Do you know the internet as well as the internet knows you?
KOPERGIETERY compiled a program of performances, installations and studio experiments that touch this evolution or themes.
playField. is a young innovative art collective founded by Lana Schneider, Marthe Schneider and Tim De Paepe. They develop interactive, new technology-oriented theater installations that lift the boundary between player and viewer. As an audience, you determine the outcome.
For Festival Digital we invite them with part I and II from their Big Data Trilogy: # 1 Hollow and # 2 Bias (in DE CENTRALE). playField lets the audience think in a playful way about the impact of data and digitalization on our society and on ourselves. We live in times where technology evolves faster than the average person can handle. With this triology, PlayField aims our attention to 'big data' that are frequently present in our daily lives, without us realizing it well.
# 1 HOLLOW (in the KOPERGIETERY!)
In this installation, a series of encounters with a stranger will encourage you to think about intimacy and privacy. How much and how quickly do you expose something? An experience that lingers on and questions our daily use of digital communication tools.
