Cinema and interactive artistic game
UKI – Enter the bionet
The interactive installation UKI – Enter the BioNet launches us into the future in a science-fiction scenario in which the Net, the Internet of our time, has collapsed. The Genom Corp has taken human body hostage to initiate BioNet, a network made up of red blood microcomputing cells (erythrocytes) activated to recondition our desires.
FLUIDØ – a film by Shu Lea Cheang
Set in the post-AIDS future of 2060, where the Government is the first to declare the era AIDS FREE, mutated AIDS viruses give birth to ZERO GEN – humans that have genetically evolved in a very unique way. These gender fluid ZERO GENs are the bio-drug carriers whose white fluid is the hypernarcotic for the 21st century, taking over the markets of the 20th century white powder high. The ejaculate of these beings is intoxicating and the new form of sexual commodity in the future. The new drug, code named DELTA, diffuses through skin contact and creates an addictive high.
Taiwanese-American director Shu Lea Cheang is best known for her 2000 cult smash I.K.U. in which sensual cyborgs fuck for information and pleasure. A pioneer in the field of media art, she embraced internet and hacking culture early on, recognizing both its capacity to enslave as well as liberate, mixing that with queer and sexually explicit imagery bringing something new to the cultural landscape. Cheang describes herself as both a “cyberhomesteader” and a “high-tech aborigine” hinting at meta-levels of not only her own life, but the worlds of her films.
