Brytpunkt treats the crossing of worlds, their coalescence and separation, and finding something where nothing was.
Using purely synthesised computer-generated sounds and visuals it explores the superimposition and sepration of different layers of reality. Point clouds shaped by a Lorenz system, depth of field simulations and images of faces let different kinds of breaking points unfold as fragments in space.

The interactive installation ci-poetry simulates the concept of collaborative coding or continuous integration (CI) through generative poetry creation. The installation has been designed for the specific context of R1, the first experimental nuclear reactor in Sweden, now dismantled and used as a cultural venue. In the installation, a collective poem is composed and sonified by 12 “poets” who each contribute with a line of their own source poem.

In the time of mass extinctions and loss of natural habitat, humanity is doing its best to capture just a glimpse of authenticity in virtual garden substitutes, radically reducing the mystical holiness of nature into scientific readings. In the Church of Progress we worship a pale imitation while the living is questioned and killed in holy sacrifice; desperately attempting to save any fragments of natural experience.
By forcing the audience into a new type of engagement with a well known device, the computer, this work has a potential to expose the way technology always forces us into a certain type of interaction, perhaps a Heideggerian new bringing-forth of truth as it lets ”the veil appear as what veils”. The fragile aspect of the work amplifies the perception of the force acting on the computer, invoking the sublime, and the mysterious world of computer inner workings, the computational sublime.
