faster than light (2018) is a hybrid performance-film developed in residence at the Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens, Greece, as part of European Media Art Platform/Residency Exchange (EMAP/EMARE).
During the residency, the artists collaborated with a group of local activists and performers through one-on-one exchanges and improvised group encounters. These meetings focused on the complexities of representation, the tension between individuality and collectivity, and the building of non-digital social networks. This process was documented through a range of filmic methods including MiniDV and high-frame-rate slow-motion recording, then crafted into a multi-layered filmic journey that weaves together the artists’ interests in ecology, gender, and quantum intelligence.
