This Platform Life (a command line memoir)
In Her Interior and Petra will perform This Platform Life (a command line memoir). This Platform Life is a memoir, looking back to look forward at a life lived in the futurepast, platform stacking, stratifying, and avatar jumping, where the flesh in all its porosity leaks data into the dataocean to become a multiplicity in univocity. Hyperleaping from platform to platform and avatar to avatar, exhuming zombie shells and webbing, messily.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
In Her Interior
Formed in 2015, In Her Interior co-creates and performs live works of spoken, sung, and recorded text and video within site-specific installation environments. As two of the four co-founders of cyber-feminist group VNS Matrix (est. 1991), da Rimini and Barratt have contributed to critiques of gender and technology for over three decades. Her Eyes Were As Black As Coal… is a new work by the Australian collective, on view in Refiguring the Future.
Petra (aka Waste Heat) is a Milwaukee-based sound artist & DJ whose ambient/techno mixes are really taking off in the Midwest and beyond. This is the first time they have performed live with In Her Interior, and in New York, although they have collaborated on sporadic philosophy gigs together.
