SAW Video Media Art Centre is thrilled to present the premiere of Listener, a performance work by Kite (aka Suzanne Kite), at Knot project space. The performance will mark the first iteration in a series of new world-building projects by the Oglala Lakota performance artist, visual artist, and composer that weaves together a diasporic Lakota science fiction narrative.
Listener is an iterative, site-specific performance artwork engaging with Lakota epistemologies through computational media, machine learning algorithms, and narrative, using a custom technological suite enacting relationships between the body, the user/performance interface, and the computer. The performance system consists of a hair-braid interface with movement, audio, video, sculpture, and text creating a spiral feedback dynamic between body and system.
