Neophilus

 

Neophilus is the first performance by Studio Enklaar, a 30 minute interactive media performance in the form of a duet between computer and live performer.

 

Can a computer question its owner? Can the owner question its computer? As technology becomes deeper and deeper imbedded in our daily lives it has a tendency to become more and more opaque.

This way we are almost led to believe the technology does not exist anymore. There is no mechanical or physical object anymore which signifies the existence of the inner workings. All of technology is becoming a black box, which only shows itself in the events of a crash.
