SNN #3: Forms of the Living takes place simultaneously in three distant locations: live in Montréal, Berlin and Tokyo. Using light, video, sound, VR, artificial life algorithms and neural networks, Salter, Saunier and Ikegami orchestrate a global experience that while internationally shared, is impossible to grasp in its entirety.
Artist, professor, and research chair Chris Salter, artist and doctoral researcher Alexandre Saunier and physicist and artificial life expert Takashi Ikegami.
The SNN#3: Forms of the Living performance is assisted by Berlin Monom's director William Russell, sound designer Rodrigo Stambuk and virtual environment designer Timothy Thomasson.
