Curatorial collaboration Irruptive Chora presents their experimental, technology-focused project Hyperspace coinciding with the launch of a digital platform.
Hyperspace is a year-long peer-led study into new hybrid ways of making and sharing art, with a special focus on accessibility. At Iklectik they will create multi-sensorial encounters of interactive hybrid art works and performances that form together an accessible affective space.
The institute has supported Finnish artist and creative technologist Erik Lintunen’s work for Hyperspace.
Lintunen’s work is grounded in new media research and information experience design. His primary interests are interpretable machine learning, mathematics, and philosophy–broadly speaking, systems related to knowledge and knowing (statistical methods, models, representations). He has developed and exhibited a range of collaborative works across spaces, places and frequencies: Barbican Open Lab, HOME Manchester, IKLECTIK, RA Lates, Resonance FM/Extra, Royal College of Art, Somerset House, SPILL Festival of Performance, University of the Arts London, WIRED Japan Creative Hack Awards, fringe venues, and online. Erik is currently completing his Finnish (non-)military service, working as a research assistant at the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence/Aalto University.
Hyperspace project is funded by Arts Council England, Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland and Italian Cultural Institute London. The project partners include Shape Arts and Resonance FM.
Hyperspace at IKLECTIK (20 Carlisle Lane, London, SE1 7LG) on Saturday 18 February. The event starts at 12pm, please check IKLECTIK’s website for detailed programme and tickets.
