Aiming to think simultaneously about spirituality, technology and living together, the exhibition is made of contemplative installations in different modalities, from interactivity to meditation. The Altars for Cosmic Talismans
by Lucile Olympe Haute compose a space of recollection of the different facets of the same life form. The staged discs can be approached as material experiments, waste from a drink production or ritual objects. They invite us to question what we believe in, our collective values and their influence on our relationship to the world, the ways we collaborate with, care for, cultivate or exploit other living things.
The installation-play Spectral Plain
by Guillemette Legrand and Vincent Thornhill proposes to immerse oneself in a world that has undergone a geomagnetic reversal, in search of a new energy alignment. The journey ends around a campfire, around which the representation of a multi-species energy network is built. Spectral Plain is powered by a cosmic radiation sensor and a predictive language model (GPT-3) that was developed from a technical and mythological understanding of electromagnetic energy.
The exhibition gives rise to several activations: visits in the presence of the artists, Cyberwitches Coven performance (bilingual), Cosmogonic Tours in Spectral Plain
performance, discussion "Penser-rêver à l'École des arts décos, réinventer nos relations" by Eugénie Zuccarelli (in French). This exhibition is supported by EnsadLab and the University of Nîmes. CURATOR
