The third conversation is linked to Lancel/Maat’s The Kissing Data Symphony, a work that brings together art, neuroscience, psychology, and sociology. Artists Lancel and Maat will reflect on the challenges of interdisciplinary collaboration with scientist Frances Brazier, full professor in Engineering Systems Foundations at the Delft University of Technology.
Artists and researchers, Karen Lancel and Hermen Maat based in Amsterdam are considered pioneers exploring the tension between embodied presence, intimacy and alienation, social cohesion and isolation, privacy and trust in posthuman bio(techno)logical entanglement with (non-)human others. They radically deconstruct and re-orchestrate automated biometric control technologies neuro-feedback and sensory perception, to create poetic Trust-Systems. www.lancelmaat.nl
