Medium Bastard Amber is a birth name that stands for average intensity, hybrid origins and the coloration present in an LED light filter for the enhancement of the skin’s undertones, with consistent color results from batch to batch. It serves as an analogue device that carries out the loud voice of a rhetoric of sentient flesh, a technological bastard with a huge amount of human form around it.
Medium Bastard Amber will be performed for 360 mins in good visibility, for the public eye, inside the Arch of Casa Artelor, while the remaining ### mins will be performed before the tense sightlines of private encounters, in-between blinks.
Our tandems turn into tripartite bodies, chaotic, makeshift anatomies turn their anthropomorphised features into creatures we empathise with in our shared imagined spaces. Motorised, automated bodies facilitate our attempt to rationalise those technological bodies we increasingly don’t understand, a feeling intensified with each episode of intimacy we tender to.
