Event description
A preview of INTERFACE CHAOS, the debut short film by the Demystification Committee, followed by a conversation with the artists

About this Event

The Demystification Committee investigates self-organising nonhuman beings in their debut short film INTERFACE CHAOS, accompanied by an original soundtrack by SKY H1.

Two palm trees endemic to a single island in the archipelago of the Seychelles search for a home and a means to live and love, interfacing with the chaos of nature. This land is shared with Money, self-organising according to an accumulative logic and creating a chaos of interfaces, such as the tax haven of the Seychelles, in order to cover its actions.

As nonhuman intelligences following their own intrinsic logic, the sentience of palms and Money produce different landscapes. While the palms break free from scripts and fallibly experiment in their search for new paths, marking the landscape with signs such as the mysterious coconut they produce, Money acts as a tool of measure and rationalisation, preoccupied with shielding every interface, or node, of its survival network, leaving little or no trace.

Through the signs left behind by palms and calculating facades of Money, INTERFACE CHAOS explores forces and intensities, doors and membranes, entries and exits.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with the artist hosted by Evening Class, touching on the themes of chaos, nonhuman sentience and survival interfaces, and by a Q&A with the audience.

This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival 15-22 June 2019. The full programme is on antiuniversity.org
