Matters of

V/RITUAL: COLLECTIVE COMPLEXITY

“Each existant’s singularity is contingent upon its becoming one possible expressions of all other existants.”

— Denise Ferreira da Silva, On Difference without Separability, 2016.

Exploring ecological conditions with virtual others, the online screening invites you to write and create a collaborative ritual together, responding to the artist’s narrative while occupying the physical and virtual space.

Objectives are blurred. Logic is grey. Reason is minimal. Tapping into neural entanglements, this digital curatorial experiment is an attempt at collective ecological thinking, creating a singular expression via networked digital media.
