From Life to Afterlife Cinema


Presentation Title:

  • From Life to Afterlife Cinema




  • This artist’s talk will explore emergent forms of biological narrativity in relation to threads between the subdomains of new media and the evolving/cumulative data streams of bio- and ecoinformatics. Weaver will present his creative investigations into new media-based processes for the re-animation of the digital residues of lost lifeforms (including ancient DNA & protein sequences) and sonic, visual and data sampling from extinct habitats & endangered environments. Presented works will follow the emergence of life and afterlife interactive cinema as sensorial access to complex biological, ecological and biogeographic interactions across a spectrum of scales from the phylogenomic to the biospheric.
