Feathered Misconceptions

Categories: [performance]

A fifteen minutes long performative lecture at 1800th century building Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket. Commissioned by Ny Carlsberg Fondet for their yearly celebration of their founder. Using video, computer vision and speech recognition it explores the potential of misunderstandings. Drawing connections between petrified wooden Greek architecture, unheroic bodies, feathered architectures and the advanced computer systems that interpret us today. It utilises a range of deliberate linguistic, historical and visual misunderstandings. Performed by lecturer, who is not completely in control of what goes on, weaves a loose narrative.
