Collaborations

Uncanny Selves. Alserkal Arts Foundation [2022]

​Program Concept
Uncanny Selves was a reading, film screening and discussion program, supported by the Alserkal Foundation. The animating concern was to explore the relationship that humans have to copies of themselves. While people have contended with dolls, puppets, and other lifelike objects since ancient times, these entities have acquired an ontological urgency as a result of technological developments in A.I. and robotics in the last couple of decades. The increase in our encounters with our uncanny selves tends to give rise to anxiety-prone responses, and what we would like to do is explore new vocabularies that articulate the ethical, political, and creative possibilities of human/object coexistence.

Mobile phones, enabled with cameras, make cell phone photography as an emerging media format. This has made it possible for new players to enter the domain of image making. It changes the way photos are made, viewed, shared and circulated. Played on all weekends of November 2008
