Le Banquet des activités humaines exigeant un effort soutenu
- Sound installation
From Saturday 11 to Sunday 12 December 2021
16 rue Charles Frérot
Like a ventriloquist hydra, the fruit of a cyborg becoming, the sound and visual installation Le banquet des activités humaines exigeant un effort soutenu (The Banquet of Human Activities Requiring Sustained Effort) uses sound poetry to think about the injunctions of the world of work and machine learning technologies.
As part of Biennale NOVA_XX
A manager, a therapist, a translator, a cryptologist and a speaker. In a laboratory, five employees feed an artificial intelligence.
Representative of our contemporary society (economy, health, digital, media) and selected for the language imposed by their professions, the guests feed their immaterial employer with their monologues.
However, the contours of an emancipating and poetic language, made of neologisms, rhythms and choruses, gradually take shape and will divert the process.
At the heart of a techno-tinkered device, the equipped voices, on the border between the physical and the virtual, take shape through the spatialization of sound and multi-channel (audio, text display, light). An immersive experience dedicated to the story of a human-machine symbiosis via language.
