18.45 hrs Error_in_Time(v.t_3)_ by ko66, Netwurker_Mez and sister0
19.30 hrs on invitation by moddr_, Rotterdam, a performance by LoVid from New York: "Catchy".
LoVid is an interdisciplinary artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. Their work includes live video installations, sculptures, digital prints, patchworks, media projects, performances, and video recordings. They combine many opposing elements in their work, contrasting hard electronics with soft patchworks, analog and digital, or handmade and machine produced objects. This multidirectional approach is also reflected in the content of their work: romantic and aggressive, wireless and wire-full. They are interested in the ways in which the human body and mind observe, process, and respond to both natural and technological environments, and in the preservation of data, signals, and memory.
Error_in_Time(v.t_3) uses sound, literature, performance and live code manipulations to explore the intimate workings of computer/human interfaces. What news might a female hacker bring back for the rest of us? Performers [Networked and Local]: ko66, Netwurker_Mez and sister0
Our computers know us more intimately than lovers — but this is a lopsided relationship. Behind their user-friendly facades, what do we know of the operating systems that drive our daily fix? What happens inside geek space?
This isn't a performance about identity, it’s about identity theft. In the age of Facebook, Twitter and Wikileaks, most men and women grapple with issues of online privacy and exposure without understanding how the online world is put together. _Power geek_ figures tend to be male: think Mark Zuckerburg, Julian Assange, and Kevin Mitnick.
Is there a place for women inside *geek space*: what news might a female hacker bring back for the rest of us?
In _Error_in_Time(v.t_3)_ sister0, Ko66 and Netwurker_Mez give us a compelling insight into geek space from the perspective of a female hacker. _Error_in_Time(v.t_3) uses sound, literature, performance and live code manipulations to explore the intimate workings of computer/human interfaces, surveillance and social media.
_Error_in_Time(v.t_3)_ is a performance in which the character enters into her daily computer routine. The coded content of her screen is projected upstage. Networked presences, dancing, file searching and parsing are the main scenes of action. She weaves her story via performative algorithms and types in a surreal first person narrative touching on subjects from dark matter to rogue bots.
