Lafayette Electronic Arts Festival: Cyborg Goddess #17 – Dancing with the Ghosts
April 22 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 pmFree
Karla Kracht : Live Cinema Performance – Cyborg Goddess # 17 – Dancing with the Ghosts
Artefacts from a future past, mystic figures, broken robots and a grave, where the bones of the passed away are screws, plastic parts and integrated circuits. Entombed with artifacts from the 23rd century… forgotten myths and rites are mirrored in the leftover objects that are buried with these kings, queens and goddesses.
The performance uses handmade objects, video and projection, to tell a story of an archaeologist of the future. A handheld camera films these objects, at the same time they are projected and amplified on a big screen. Accompanied by a handcrafted electronic soundtrack to help the viewer to immerse into this fancifully bizarre live sci-fi movie.
About Karla Kracht:
Karla creates retro-futurist techno-sculptures, where the limits between the drawing stroke and their digital reflection blur completely. In combination with live camera, drawings, video and shadow projections, light and animation, she creates bizarre universes full of strange creatures, miniature cities inhabited by mythological cyborg goddesses that tell sci-fi stories about current social and political issues. Recently she investigates mystic aspects of human society, and imagines scenarios for a world in pre-singularity, where machine and human are on the same level and their myths and magic melt with each other. Her award-winning work has been shown in 4 continents, more than 22 countries and over 50 cities. Karla is based in Barcelona, Spain and works worldwide.
