The Wishing Well
“Digital Body” Laboratory
Lake Studios Berlin and Troika Tronix: Isadora
Description: Participatory AR ritual. Participants were instructed to write and bury a wish, desire, secret, etc. to become ritualised by the animations.
Inspired by conceptual frameworks of “material incompatibilities” and “degrees of visibility” (a phone screen in the sun, an outlet in water), the The Wishing Well meditated on the negative associations of technologies relationship to ecology within a non-dualistic approach to organic/non-organic materiality. How to not constitute technology as being mutually exclusive to the construction of a more ecologically ethical world? How to hold the weight of the disaster, while working within it? Were some working questions in the technical-artistic experimentation.
