Operations in Mixed Reality (11h Anf. II, FLUC)
This artist's talk addresses generative practices and the use of ubiquitous computing within contemporary digital poetry and performance. Through discussing projects that merge computational writing with live performance and de-centralize the screen through the integration of augmented reality, the talk examines new aesthetics and possibilities emerging from the synthesis of body and machine, code and language, and physical and virtual space. At the core of the talk are Morrissey's Fulbright project "Electronic Writing in Mixed and Augmented Reality" and the work of Anatomical Theatres of Mixed Reality, an interdisciplinary collective he co-founded in 2012.
Operatus (21.30h Casa das Caldeiras)
Operatus is a live performance of a generative narrative-poetic system distributed between screens, interactive objects and augmented reality overlays. The work engages a range of historical and contemporary contexts of observation and forensic analysis including early modern surgical theaters, the deductive logic of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and The Stud File, a methodical archive of personal evidence documenting the sexual exploits of Samuel Steward, a 20th century tattoo artist, pornographer, and friend of Gertrude Stein.
