Collaborative work by Min young Kim, Dongjoo Seo, Joungyun Yum
<Alain> explores multi-layered relationships between technological culture and human beings with the subject matter of 'cars,' which are chunks of machinery and technological interfaces that have integrated the cutting-edge technologies of the day from invention to the present, significantly impacting both human and non-human life. Unfolding the seqduence of performance, consisting of dancers' movements, visuals using computer vision AI algorithm, VR, and sound, from a perspective of a virtual narrator 'Alain,' the work reflects humanity and artificiality mixed under the highly advanced machine intelligence as an affective relationship of emotion and the senses beyond matter.
