Upcoming event - don't miss out, if you're anywhere near Ljubljana.
From December 16, 2016 to January 13, 2017 (at Kapelica Gallery on Kersnikova 4 in Ljubljana) visitors of Slovenia's capital city are invited to experience a 3D visual art project, entitled Horsepower: the poetics of movement.
The concept was developed by Zoran Srdić Janežič and Otto Urpelainen and is described as "a situation rising within the connected media, contemplating the technological progress in post-humanistic context."
The horse in the featured installation is a hybrid robot (hybrot) with its own perception and movement intelligence that is powered by a bioreactor. Unlike cyborgs (short for "cybernetic organisms") that are beings with both organic and electronic, biomechatronic body parts, the hybrot is an organism that in order to function evenly integrates electronic and biologic elements. A hybrot is nor living nor dead. It lingers in what we could call the in-between space, where life and death bear no meaning. Instead, the only thing that matters are categories, unreachable and incomprehensible to humans.
The project is supported by the Slovenian Ministry of Culture and Municipality of Ljubljana.
