SNN#3: Forms of the Living
Audiovisual performance, 2020
SNN#3: Forms of the Living is a new world premiere performance from Chris Salter, Alex Saunier and Takashi Ikegami which takes place in four locations simultaneously: Montreal, Berlin, Tokyo and Mozilla Hubs. The live and online performance thematizes the new set of conditions we are all living in and the forms of experience that these new relationships engender – conditions where viral and machine forces and human culture are all symbiotically entangled. Source material produced by the COVID pandemic – news media, sound, statistical and epidemiological data and models – is orchestrated in each physical space and in online Mozilla Hubs rooms and then fed back and forth across the planet in real time so that the different spaces ripple into and across one another.
