Digital Choc

2:00pm – 7:00pm
Free

Since 2012, the Institut Français Tokyo organizes the media art festival “Digital Choc” in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Tokyo. Three works by young German artists will be displayed in the foyer of the Goethe-Institut.

It is a critical discourse about the rapid advance of artificial intelligence and virtual reality, as well as a creative development of projection mapping techniques.

About the works:

XENORAMA will bring the sculpture “RADIX|ORGANISM|APPARTUS” to life with the help of special illuminations and sound effects, questioning the connections, dependencies and possibilities between nature and technology. RADIX was awarded the New Face Award at the 20th Japan Media Arts Festival in the category Entertainment.

“Rhizomat VR” plays out on an extended stage on the internet and in a virtual reality. In this world, a private company took over the state and established a totalitarian system. Only the rebelling group Rhizomat opposes them. “Rhizomat VR” was produced by INVR.Space in cooperation with the German-French TV channel Arte and Berliner Festspiele.

Susanne Steinmassl will present an open narrative in her film “The Future Is Not Unwritten”, that can endlessly re-write itself due to an intelligent algorithm, dealing with themes such as transhumanism and the future of our human existence.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
