An unusual duet co-performs for self-actualization through sensory experience. They explore the blurry lines between human and non-human, between the physical and the mechanical. The work is based on the blind prophet Tiresias, who creates his own identities, escaping the distinctions of man and woman.
Machines can sense properties of their environment. TIRESIAS is a self-actualising machine that tries to understand properties of itself. The knowledge that TIRESIAS infers is reflected into the environment in the form of sound-waves as an approach to materialise the machines' perception about itself.
TIRESIAS is a collaboration between artist Eleni Xynogala and KAMIENSKI.
DOP Carmen Pellon, assisted by Marina Lewin.
