This Platform Life by In Her Interior and Petra

This Platform Life is a memoir, looking back to look forward at a life lived in the futurepast, platform stacking, stratifying, and avatar jumping, where the flesh in all its porosity leaks data into the dataocean to become a multiplicity in univocity. Hyperleaping from platform to platform and avatar to avatar, exhuming zombie shells and webbing, messily.

Location: FlexSpace, Upstairs MFA room @ 205 Hudson Gallery.

Duration: 29 minutes

Event here.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
