Arvid & Marie perform a live coding narrative. Marie presents an excerpt from the famous Isaac Asimov story “The Question”. This anecdote, on the capacity of humankind to cope with the process of entropy, was his personal favorite tale.
Sermonizing Asimov’s tale, they seem like a duo from the future. During their performance you tend to ask yourself what do they know more than you. Marie’s beautiful soft French accent takes you gentle into space. Arvid’s live coding is both very current and intensly futuresque.
Here’s a great video registration of the performance made by the marvelous OpenWebcast crew.
Arvid & Marie
Both recently graduated from art and design studies in the Netherlands, Arvid Jense and Marie Caye collaborate on their shared passion for art and technology. Together they combine technological expertise with critical thinking.
While in their previous work as a duo they focused on musical expression and on the hearing sense, they have recently started a new theme of research on the non-human and on how it confronts our human-centric world.
