Hello all Spectre readers,
[sorry for x-post]

We hope you are all well

Our upcoming events on the 29th September at the gallery might be of
interest to you all  - a full day of Science Fiction exploration; starting
with *Science Fiction Squared symposium
with a series of talks and panels by leading writers, thinkers and critics
exploring the future of science fiction.
The symposium will be followed by *[℧R*]
solo performance developed and produced by the Performance-Theatre group
Fronte Vacuo (Marco Donnarumma, Margherita Pevere and Andrea Familari), as
a new rhizome of their project Humane Methods.
The performance contains nudity, loud audio and strobe lighting that may
potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. (18+)

We hope you can make it onsite if you are local or online

Thank you

Thu 29 Sep 2022

*Thu 29 Sep 2022 1:30pm - 7:00pm Island Social, Globe House, 34 Botanic
Square, E14 0LU*

*Science Fiction Squared
*is a
one-day convention organised by former New Scientist and Arc
editor-in-chief Sumit Paul-Choudhury inviting established and emerging
science fiction creators and critics to discuss how social and
technological trends are likely to change the form and function of science

What new challenges and eternal questions will tomorrow's SF address? Will
it advocate for a better world, or warn against a worse one? Who will
create it, and why?

Since its invention, science fiction has taken many forms - from its
beginnings in the gothic horror of Frankenstein, through the globe-trotting
adventures of Jules Verne, the techno-utopianism of its Golden Age, the
trippy fantasies of New Wave and the slick, corporate dystopias of
cyberpunk. But what will it evolve into next?

Speakers include: Sumit Paul-Choudhury and Nimrod Vardi, Adam Roberts, Beth
Singler, Yen Ooi, Caroline Edwards, Jo Walton, Sumit Paul-Choudhury, Glyn
Morgan, Steward Hotston, Lavie Tidhar, Neon Yang, Modupe Ayinde, Aliette de
Bodard. More speakers to be announced in the coming weeks.

*is a
solo performance developed and produced by the Performance-Theatre group
Fronte Vacuo (Marco Donnarumma, Margherita Pevere and Andrea Familari), as
a new rhizome of their project Humane Methods.

℧R reflects on violence as a foundation of current algorithmic societies: a
violence of instructions, of systems, of infrastructures created with the
specific purpose of abusing all living beings. Such systems work through
loops, organised repetitions. Humans make instructions, machines repeat
instructions, living things suffer instructions, on and on and on. The
piece takes the loop as a starting point to combine multi-sensorial
stimulation with human-computer interaction and somatic practices to test
the seeming impossibilities of bodily articulation and repetition. Embodied
in Marco Donnarumma’s musical instrument XTH Sense, an interactive, machine
learning algorithm transforms the inner sound of muscles, blood, and bones
into a real-time choreography of movement, sounds and light.

The evening ends with an artist talk unfolding the ideas, research and
artistic methodology behind the Humane Methods saga (2019-ad infinitum).
