(post)Internet-indie%live_action?tragi-bizarre tale?

We live in a mediatized world of wild conspiracy theories, impending ecological crises, pernicious narrations, where ironic + nihilistic viral #influenza pictures are concurrently cropping up on innumerable devices. A toxic cloud of digital images is drifting from the monitors in parallel to the degradation of the physical environment.

? How does pixelated information get caught in the network of an organic body? What kind of stage (a)effects does a work generate with incompatible Internet content? What in the web of images is actually t r U E?

In response to the oculocentric organisation of the world, the hybrid stage production adds materiality to pasty digital images and processes them —\_( physically )_/—. It combines movement, video, the production with objects and sound, translating *through irony* the logic of the Internet into a physical space……………...The relationship between the body and images spreads open the virtual spaces of intermediacy; /between the organic /imaginary and digital /among memetic trash /between the atmosphere /affect and sensation //at the intersection of experience, apparition, premonition, and fact. Between the past, the manifold presents and – not virtual, but tangible – > future.

Screamage is a continuation of my work at the intersection of the corporeal and digital, beyond the binary understanding of the physical and informational. Contextualised by a Post-Internet way of thinking and organizing, it is an event that allows the artistic team and I to treat images as objects and objects as images. In order to understand and dismantle the unbearableness of life, we twist its dominant language; we work with mediatized bodies, with unstable elements, hallucinations, evaporation, the virtual dimension whose cracks might reveal a tangible future.
