WeAreWorms: StRAH - Human Scarecrows 2.0
fredag 16. juni 2017 kl. 17:00 på Losæter
a video installation and performance by WeAreWorms
The Scarecrows are not just created to scare the birds, but the humans too.
Sometime the crops can be scary if it comes form GMO seed.
We see our AV performance as a pop-political commentary on rapidly growing GMO seed industry.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
► WeAreWorms is an artist duo formed by Anja Malec and Ilja Badulin.
► Worms that have been created are designed only to spread, and do not attempt to change the systems they pass through. However, the worm showed that even these “payload free” worms can cause major disruption by increasing network and other unintended effects. The worm designed to do more than spread the worm—it might delete a system, encrypt in a cryptoviral extortion attack. A very common worms is to brake a backdoor in the infected spot to allow the creation of a “zombie” control of the worm author. Machines are often referred to as botnets and are very commonly used.
ABOUT HUMAN SCARECROWS 2.0
► For the second year, Human Scarecrows’ series of non-eventful moments will suggest performative rituals allowing a dialogue with the birds to prevent them from eating the seeds. Rather than chasing them away, we aim to engage a dialogue and distract them by any means: they will be the true spectators.
All the performances and actions will be using alternative technologies as source of power and will be activated in between sunsets and sunrises.
► Human Scarecrows 2.0 is taking place everyday at 5pm at Flatbread Society from the 9th to the 16th of June.
