Futur.Shock LIVE Season Two, Strange Attractor, Volume One:
On Thursday 29th September, FOLD & Futur.Shock will launch the second season of their in-house, multi-disciplinary arts programme, Futur.Shock LIVE: Strange Attractor.
Futur.Shock LIVE’s programming aims at a collective recalibration and reflection upon our recent experiences, merging disciplines, generations, time zones, technologies, science fiction, absurdism and digital culture.
The monthly event series, Strange Attractor, will continue Futur.Shock’s quest to dissect, explore, research and make sense of our recent confrontation with futurity, whilst helping us to understand more effectively and collectively our own creative adaptability rate.
Strange Attractor, is a term within physics & mathematics that describes the behavior of chaotic systems. The term is synonymous with futurology and was referred to by Terrence Mckenna as the transcendental object at the end of time. This programme will embrace hyper-complexity, futurism, multiple perspectives, unconventional and futuristic thinking within differing communities and demographics as well as the politics of mental health, critique and existential risk. It will also continue their aims to facilitate cross-industry / cultural community building and collaboration.
Trans-disciplinary and experimental approaches to new media are at the heart of their programming. Curators, collaborations and artists will respond to this season's overarching theme, Strange Attractor, but each month will also focus on its own theme that draws upon the subjects listed above. Season Two will be divided into two Volumes. Volume One will be programmed from Sept - Dec and Volume Two from Jan - June.
Live light activations, futuristic digital dystopian audio-visual performances and installations, Avant-Garde electronic music, Sound/Noise Art analogue and digital technologies will interact into coherent, dark and multi-sensory experiences attempting to confront the terrible foundations of being, and find meaning within absurdity.
Embedded within one of London’s most innovative underground Night-Clubs this highly charged live programme, will create a new fertile environment for an experimental, audio-visual, multi-sensory, journey that will act as a type of transcendental mediator to “the future”, both psychologically, metaphysically, physically and digitally.
