Artistic and Intelligent Research Alternator AIRA (researchers Susanna Helke, Liisa Ikonen, Marko Karo, Harri Laakso and Maiju Loukola) invited me to create an installation to Research Pavilion #3 in Venice 2019.

 

They asked for

 

a new starting point,

process and transparency,

new fictiveness,

an other world and

a non exhibition.

 

They wanted to know, where are we now?

 

"Artistic Intelligence Research Alternator AIRA focuses on parallel realities by taking other worlds as its starting point for a collective inquiry into different modalities in our perception of reality. This conceptual framing is based on an observation: a new form of narrating, which can be called "New Fictiveness" has emerged, with a new understanding of fiction and its intertwinement with fact. As a concrete endeavor for Research Pavilion #3 in Venice, our research cell attempted to construct a collaborative vehicle for envisioning new imaginaries: producing actions, narratives, images and constellations aiming at augmenting the world we inhabit."
