‘But there has also been a growing recognition of another response through coalition – affinity, not identity.’
Cyborg Manifesto, Donna Haraway
This film bundles statements that were partly realised with an artificial algorithm, to which the question was repeatedly asked: “What is to be done?”. The film tells an ambiguous story through a multitude of ‘personalities’ that seek affinities between very different perspectives. Not a single voice but many voices making what they want from the material they are placed upon, taking meanings in their own direction. The images refer to the false intimacy we develop with digital devices and the self-correcting behaviour that sometimes results from this. The shapes that appear behind the sentences are generated with visual feedback systems.
