Colette Sadler with Mikko Gaestel

ARK 1

Duration 40 min

Due to an irreparable error, “ARK 1” has become disconnected from its main network. Floating through deep space for centuries, digital apparitions and hallucinations haunt the solitary humanoid AI onboard. Now in a state of deterioration, it attempts to make sense of its inbuilt information of past human existence. Which fragments of its data and value systems will be preserved or vanish into obsolescence? In this im­mersive solo performance installation, choreographer Colette Sadler and visual artist Mikko Gaestel thematise the future of the human in relation to technology inside the virtual architecture of a 3D environment.
