*Unfoldings - Mike Blow

culture that often produces the ills it purports to treat. In this game
engine based piece we ask how might we conceptualize our inner lives as
a game in which lived experience is understood as a series of "levels"
to be achieved, playing on the recent media popularity of "gamification"
as a life strategy.

Friday 1 – Sunday 3 Nov, around Watermans, **FREE*
*Please see signs for starting point
*Requires smartphone running the free Android or iPhone app Interzone
Theatre and a pair of closed-cup headphones.
A rare disorder enables the protagonist to experience the place s/he is
in, in a different time. But when Past and Future events start to mix
up, the Present becomes a luxury.
Interzone Theatre is a portal to a parallel reality, unveiling a layer
of narrative that is superimposed on the streets, waterways, parks and
interior spaces of the city. In this exploratory theatrical experience,
the city itself is the mise-en-scène, and passersby are unwitting extras
in an intricate psychogeographic journey. App powered by Mobile Explorer.
*JUPITER STAR AXIS video, La Horrox
Additional sound mix: Joel Cahen
Friday 1 – Saturday 2 Nov, Cinema, FREE
*A celestial film which shows an unborn foetus of the artist moving
within his amniotic world mapped by a constellation of stars. Each
star plays a part of a sonic composition, when its co-ordinates are
changed by the movements of the foetus. Comprised from manipulated
recordings of the artist’s baby afterbirth, the composition uses
surround sound and is heard as if from the perspective of the foetus.
