Technology and human relationships in a post-digital setting: SPOORA

Date: 2024.04.22
Organised by the MOME Animation programme, the event brought together media artists and dancers to explore how technology transforms our personal lives, social interactions, and physical presence.

How does our daily use of the Internet and spending half of our waking moments in the online space using technology affect our identities? In the SPOORA project, media artists and dancers reflected in an interdisciplinary approach on how our tools and avatars become extensions of our selves.

Held at the MOME Film Studio, the performance delved into phenomena like the distortion of intimacy caused by the constant need for stimulation, oversharing, and the resulting sense of physical detachment.

Sponsored by by the National Cultural Fund (NKA), MOME Media Design, SÍN Arts Centre, and the Workshop Foundation, the SPOORA project is a collaborative effort between media artists and dancers organised by the MOME Animation programme.
