A Society for Nontrivial Pursuits
@ State Studio

12.03 - 21.03


State Studio hosts an evening and a long week of freshest audiovisual pieces from the S4NTP team: Friday starts with a performance evening of solos, duos & groups, ranging from classical Korean instruments to remote shared live coding. This is followed by a weeklong exhibition displayed online and in the windows of the State Studio building. The installations include staged zoom conferences, automatic pen drawings, feedback system flowers, and a “ghost performance” that de/re-composes the traces of the live shows from the opening event.
