Science-fiction and empathy for machines
In the second episode of the Artistscurrent Podcast I am talking to Jana Kerima Stolzer and Lex Rütten. They are an artist-duo working between performance-, video- and installation art and theater. In the interview we talked about working as a duo, theater, science-fiction between the today, the tomorrow and 100 years from now and robots who plan to kill humans – or might instead just be in love with each other. We also talked about humans developing empathy for vacuum cleaners, invisible machines, concepts or things that aren’t human in general. We touched on cartoons as well and the ability to show things that are not really there but might show more accurately, what is happening inside of the characters.
