21:45 - 22:15
22:30 - 23:00
In this new audio-visual performance, based on the large light installation Totem, the dynamic light visions of Moholy-Nagy meet the algorithms of artificial life. Salter and Saunier use custom sensor-based instruments in collaboration with neural networks used in Totem to create surprising luminous/sonic actions.
