MMCA Performing Arts 2021: Multiverse Website
“The universe (which others call the Library) is composed of an indefinite and perhaps infinite number of hexagonal galleries.”
— Jorge Luis Borges, The Library Of Babel
MMCA Performing Arts 2021: Multiverse is an attempt to bring in various forms of art and technology as a means of questioning and pondering upon the radical changes of today's society propelled by technological development. By actively utilizing or critically approaching some of the latest technologies, the project will experiment with key issues of contemporary art, such as visuality, temporality, physicality, and spatiality. The six artists taking part in the project―Kwon Hayoun, Kimchi and Chips, Seo Hyun-Suk, An Jungju/Jun Sojung, Jeong Geumhyung, and Hoonida Kim―will present new productions adopting various technologies; immersive technology(VR) that offers a perceptive experience close to the reality; robots that substitute the kinetic capacity of humans; artificial intelligence(AI) that surpasses a human's learning and reasoning abilities; and self-driving technology (LiDAR sensor and self-driving algorithm) that recognizes the driving condition and thereby plans and controls the drive by itself.
