Latent Spaces – Performing Ambiguous Data
Zürich University of the Arts / since 2021
The research project Latent Spaces takes place in the datafied contemporary and is based at Zürich University of the Arts. The term latent space refers to a (technical/conceptual) realm in which different possibilities co-exist before one (or more) become realized, and it refers to ambiguity, the state in which different valid readings co-exist within a system of meaning. Drawing on the strength of artistic practices, the project develops and performs these perspectives in individual projects not just through critical reflection but also through artistic interventions/creations. Participants include Dr. Felix Stalder, Dr. Alexandre Puttick, Shusha Niederberger, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Gordan Savicic and Dr. Cornelia Sollfrank. Funded by SNF.
