CROSSLUCID | BERLIN
EXPANDED.ART is pleased to present scenes from the new film DWELLERS BETWEEN THE WATERS (2023) by the Berlin-based artist duo Crosslucid at the Showroom.
DWELLERS BETWEEN THE WATERS is conjured as a series of hybrid rituals that mediate the space between physical presence, trauma, memory, healing, and virtuality.
Polyphonic in its artificially intelligent framework, its numerous modalities could be experienced as a series of happenings that are chanted by various elemental entities such as waters, winds, earth, air, algorithms, etc., as well as poetry, history, magic, humans, and more-than-human creatures.
Combining artificial intelligence with the practice of magic and alchemy, DWELLERS BETWEEN THE WATERS seeks possible solutions in response to the traumas of contemporary anthropos while examining AI’s phenomenological and cognitive idiosyncrasies.
By evoking, cultivating, and connecting various forms of consciousness in the virtual realms, DWELLERS BETWEEN THE WATERS invites the dwellers who inhabit in and among realities to share their stories and experiences, which then feed back to the (so-called) reality as evolving strings materialising across both physical and virtual domains to invoke novel perspectives, catalyse collaborative narration, and transform conceptual spaces.
