Listen up, lovers of oppressive, hi-def, entropic systems and technospiritual, auto-generative aesthetics: on April 15, TMT favorite Quantum Natives will make their US debut at Brooklyn’s ISSUE Project Room with a performance and exhibition called Grace Nexus. In line with their efforts to create immersive sensorial experiences, the collective will “use video game engine technology, paired with software-based sound design, to sculpt birds-eye and panoramic experiences of merging fictional landscapes, physical, and online spaces, which in turn will be projected in ISSUE’s theater and online.”
The performance will feature Quantum Natives co-runners Brood Ma and Yearning Kru, as well as Rachael Melanson as Rosen. The event is curated by writer/media theorist/TMT contributor DeForrest Brown Jr., his first project as 2017 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow.
