On 4th December 2020, from the moment Ibrahima wakes up, to the moment Ibrahima goes to sleep, his 360 degree, first person point of view life will be shown online. VR compatible. The Other life shown for the first time on Friday, 4.12. 11:45 - 18:45 CET here: seeing-i.com and werkleitz.de

Seeing I: The Other (2020) is part of the project Seeing I (2021), where artist Mark Farid for 24-hours a day, for 14-days, will wear a virtual reality headset, experiencing life through the eyes and ears of one person; hearing only what they hear and seeing only what they see for two weeks. Seeing I: The Other explores the movement of people in 2020; how different cultures, societies, and languages affects one’s sense of self, and – especially during the coronavirus pandemic – the ability to share in one’s experience and world, only through digital technologies. It shows different people’s lives from around the world streamed online, in a first-person point of view, 360-degree field of view, 24-continuous-hour recording. Exploring how people respond to continuous and constant self-surveillance, whilst also testing bespoke technologies in real-life circumstances.

The EMARE residency has allowed Farid to trial the use of the bespoke recorder internationally for the first time, allowing Farid to further understand the ways in which the personal characteristics, varying cultures and the location of the participants will help determine the final selection of the Other for Seeing I (2021). Farid asks the participants to simply wear the recorder and live their life as they otherwise normally would.

Starting on 4th December 2020, the first life shown on seeing-i.com will be that of Ibrahima (36), an asylum seeker from West Africa. In 2003, Ibrahima moved to the north east of England to avoid war, where he was granted indefinite right to remain by the UK government. In 2008 he had his indefinite right to remain status revoked. In 2015, Ibrahima had his indefinite right to remain re-instated by the Home Office; however, he was not given back his passport or national insurance number. For the last 12 years, Ibrahima has been unable to work, leave the UK, or see his children.

The next life shown on seeing-i.com will be on 14th January 2021.

  • Cyborg Futures @ IMPAKT

Join us on 17 December for the launch of the web-project Cyborg Futures: Who doesn’t want to live forever? The online event is free.

The Cyborg Futures web project includes works and presentations by EMAP artists Lancel/Maat and Hochschuh/Donovan, alongside numerous other artists and speakers including: Klasien van de Zandschulp & Ali Eslami, Simon Dogger, Monobanda, Wouter van Noort, Dan Hassler-Forest and Anneke Smelik.

Today’s rapid developments in AI, robotics and science will make people more like machines and vice versa. Not only are we creating robots that are increasingly true-to-life, but we are attempting to move beyond the limits of our impermanent bodies with the help of technological upgrades. Who doesn’t want to live forever? But what if man and machine become so similar that we can no longer tell them apart?  What would it be like to live in a world where technology and the organism have merged? How do we relate to robots and cyborgs that are taken for granted as part of society?

The same evening, Impakt invites you to a special online presentation with Cyborg artist Stelarc. Stelarc has worked on themes like the role of cyborgs, artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics ever since the late 1960s, giving his body technological extensions and engaging in extreme interactions with machines. He has swallowed micro cameras to display the inside of his body, had a third ear surgically attached to his left arm, and placed himself in a harness so that the public could control his body remotely.

Cyborg Futures: Stelarc
17 December 2020 // 19:30 h // online

Cyborg Futures is a continuation of a Dutch-German partnership between the NRW Forum and IMPAKT, in collaboration with the Heartwire collective. The project is partly funded by the Dutch consulate in Düsseldorf and Creative Industries Fund NL.

  • The Eye of the Other © Tizian Derme, Daniela Mitterberger
  • Beyond Human Perception © María Castellanos & Alberto Valverde

Is there any reality beyond the digital world? Is there any digital world out there and beyond us? Do we need the machines, or do they live, grow and reproduce themselves out there and beyond us? Which is the chain reaction being triggered by our every single online reaction? What are the limits of human existence in the digital world? The Onassis Stegi virtual exhibition, Creatures in a Series of Tubes, will try to answer these questions through a series of artworks that were created as part of the European Media Art Platform (EMAP).
