TABOO - TRANSGRESSION - TRANSCENDENCE
in Art & Science
27-29 September 2023, Malta Society of Arts, Valletta
A performance in which members of the conference are invited to interact with digital screen devices using both violent and erotic tools such as feathers, sex toys, hammers, and pillows as they please. This performance will be the third iteration of a series of participatory performances in which our everyday ethics towards intelligent technology are revealed and challenged.
