Jan/Feb 2021. #TakeCare-Stipendium 3RD skin am TD Berlin (Gefördert vom Fonds Darstellende Künste aus Mitteln der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien im Rahmen von NEUSTART KULTUR und Flausen+) – eine künstlerische Recherche zu haptischen Technologien für Performance und Mixed Reality. 

Marina Dessau (internil) baut vibrotaktile Maschinen, kombiniert Ton-Bild-Tast-Sequenzen & untersucht die Wahrnehmung anderer Intelligenzen. Wie setzen Cephalopoden, wie KI’s ihre Welt zusammen? Können wir uns der nicht zu beantwortenden Frage nähern, indem wir unsere Sicht um einen Sinn erweitern?

For 3RD skin Marina Dessau (internil) builds vibrotactile contraptions and combines sound-image-touch sequences in immersive, as well as nonsensical ways. With the help of the built devices, VR/AR and her body, she investigates the perception and subjective experience of other intelligences. How do cephalopods, how do AI-based sensory systems assemble their world? Can we approximate the unanswerable question by adding the sense of touch to our common sensory assumptions about other species?

2018 EMOTIONS FROM AN ALGORITHMIC POINT OF VIEW [Live Performance] is a collaboration between visual artist Coralie Vogelaar choreographer Marjolein Vogels and performer Marina Miller Dessau.

@transmediale Berlin 2018 | @V2 Rotterdam 2018 | @puntWG Amsterdam 2018

Together they explored and trained deconstructed facial expressions according to the Facial Action Coding System, developed by prof. Paul Ekman in 1978. This system forms the basis of contemporary emotion recognition software and shows us a computer way of looking at our emotions.

By combining these collaborative performative experiments with algorithmic compositions and image blending as a method, these studies have resulted in – amongst other – two video installations and a live performance exploring the complexities and unknown expressions of the face.
