  • Hypersubject Conversations is a developing practice based artistic research work that explores how to give voice to the more-than-human, and reflect in a symbiotic way. A group of women experiment with role play and improvisation techniques to enter larger networks/ institutions/contexts that they are a part of, and speak as if they are these networks/ institutions/contexts (Hypersubjects). The conversations go on in an installation of sensors/ programming/video projections/light/amplified sound, that aims to fold these lager hypersubjects out onto the room, so that the room itself constitutes the hypersubject. The human persons sit inside the speaking hypersubject, and fold their perspectives internally/externally between the embodied and virtual.
