frictionless user experience presents two performances that investigate the mundane ways technologies augment the everyday, the pull of friction as a user experiences the technologies they use.
minor documents (new effort) by Jane Frances Dunlop
minor documents (new effort) is a choral performance for one person. Somewhere between a failing videocall and a confused camgirl, the performer repeats herself into something beyond legibility.
gross fatigue by Caleb Madden
Gross Fatigue excessively crashes together multiple YouTube clips in an improvised sonic, visual, and semiotic overload, (un)designed to blur the line between cognition and noise.
The performances will be followed by short panel discussion between the artists.
Free wine, snacks and other beverages will be provided.
