Entangled Others presents Primordial Interface

IDEAL – Digital Arts Center

Length: 15 minutes

Country: Argentina/Norway

The rhythm of the vast, natural processes of what we consider inanimate lies forever beyond our direct perception. It is up to us to piece together the evidence, to sketch forth a tangible compression of time that fits within the limits of our senses. ‘Primordial Interface’ is the speculative compression of 15 eons of time on an imagined exoplanet into 15 minutes, tracing the unclear boundaries between the inanimate and animate.

Entangled Others is the shared studio practice of artists Feileacan McCormick and Sofia Crespo. Their work focuses on ecology, nature, and generative arts, emphasizing giving the more-than-human new forms a presence and life in digital space. This involves exploring questions of relationship, biodiversity, and awareness through biology-inspired technologies. In turn, they highlight how through conscious efforts, new technology can be used to bring attention and awareness to the unseen that we are tightly interwoven with. Entanglement is a complex state, where no single entity can be said to be separate, or somehow unaffected, by any other present entangled, we cannot consider ourselves without others, act without interacting, or speak without being heard.
