Xpiritualism

2022, for multiple speaking performers, audio/video, light and haze [??']

20/02/21 - performed by ??? at ??? (Hamburg, DE).

'Xpiritualism' is a group conversation, lecture and reading given by multiple performers. It explores digital mysticism, image manipulation, and a historical western co-opting of Arabic iconography. It is the third piece in an emerging series of pieces concerned broadly with 'alt text'.

Images from the #xpiritualism hashtag on Instagram are randomly deployed to the performers to be commented upon. As the work progresses, it more fervently brings into focus a history of scientific racism that influences the inner workings of algorithms, mathematics, and description.
