Cyberpositive, a channeling __ Screening & Talk w Maggie Roberts

Cyberpositive, a channeling __ Screening & Talk w Maggie Roberts

rile* welcomes Maggie Roberts for a screening and talk on the importance of fictioning. Maggie will discuss how fictioning, through speculation and sci-fi, has underpinned 0rphan Drift’s work since its inception in 1994.

 

Program//

SCREENING: 16h30
Screening of Miasma, 2018. HD video, running time 16:13
MIASMA combines filmed and animated waterways with various algorithmic processing. Overseeing the synthetic transformation of these collaged liminal landscapes, an androgynous swamp demon directs the flows of water, summoning its clogging. This spectral creature shapeshifts, becoming infected by the environments it inhabits, simultaneously calling forth an entropic ritual breakdown and a spiralling positive feedback loop that spontaneously generates endless blooms to clog both the liquid and data channels, triggering increasing disorder and environmental disaster.

PRESENTATION: 17h00
0(rphan) d(rift>) Cyberpositive, a channeling, 1995>>>>>
Attempting a context for this cult theory-fiction image-text and q&a with Lendl Barcelos and Ameen. Currently being reprinted by Cabinet Editions, London.

0(rphan)d(rift>)'s Cyberpositive is an experimental sci fi theory-fiction that streams a group of asked and unasked contributors writing, sampled and edited by 0D's Maggie Roberts. It was published in 1995 with support from Nick Land and Cabinet Editions, serving as a manifesto and as the catalogue for the debut exhibition of the same name. It came together in the spirit of much of 0D's visual work, bringing together processes of sampling and looping as well as the Burroughs text cut up technique, referring to a breakdown and reordering of language from a post human POV.

 

Info//

Roberts is a member of ‘hive mind’ 0rphan Drift (0D), a collaborative artist that coalesced in London in 1994. MIASMA presents 0D’s signature ‘form-dissolving, ego-melting, boundary-haemorrhaging’ (eco)feminism that has its roots in 0D’s early experiments with automated image processing – an ‘analogue machine vision’ that was produced by sampling domestic VCR magnetic tape in combination with digital replication ‘glitches’. She lives and works in London (with a studio in Capetown since 2006). She has researched myth, archetype and trance possession in Haiti, South Africa and Mexico. http://www.merliquify.com

0rphan Drift is a collaborative artist working on infra-media fiction generating through collaboration with humans, machines & the unknown.

0rphan Drift’s contemporary portal manifests in video projections, installations, texts and site specific projects. Considering current narratives around climate crisis, synthetic intelligence and interspecies communication, we imagine AI through the somatic tendencies of the octopus in order to explore possibilities in expanding and inhabiting other systems of perception and proprioception. They continue to work with moving images, digital textures, machine vision and ancient predictive technologies such as the I-Ching to create non-linear narratives and installations. www.orphandriftarchive.com

I. about
rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings and workshops. rile* is the base word for silence in Laadan, a feminist constructed langauge developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. Laadan was designed specifically to determine if development of a language aimed at expressing the views of women would shape a culture; a subsidiary hypothesis was that Western natural languages may be better suited forexpressing the views of men than women. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter male-centered language's limitations on women, who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
