Virtual Collaboration between Victoria Papagni (ARG) and tobibienz (Switzerland) in the framework of the Virtual Residency YET TO.COM(E) - This residency proposes the development of a specific project in the current pandemic situation and with the possibilities of communication, collaboration and creative practices offered by the new digital media.
becoming. always becoming. a parasite - a vermin - a cockroach. becoming. a selfie - a number - an algorithm - 00101100111 - a 3D sculpture printed in a biomaterial. overcoming the human aspect. overcoming the past. overcoming the future.
A collaboration between humans and non-humans?
- a low-tech naive romance.
how would you collaborate with a cockroach?
we love you - sexy cockroach.
Objects, insects and humane form a horizontal trilogy composed at the same level: they interact with agency and mutual affectation, shaping human subjectivity. can we empathize with that which is considered a symbol of the marginal and unpleasant? who is the parasite?
Project supported and presented as part of the Virtual Residency YET TO.COM (E) Initiated by: Work it Out (Switzerland/Germany), Espace Croisé (France), Re-Connect Festival (Iran/USA), LODO (ARG).
