AUTONOMY_JS


This interactive installation inspired in the identity of the late 80s and the early 90s Rave movement. It is transforming the scenery through light and the interplays between people and machine learning. It is designed to be used as a stand-alone object or part of a communitarian visual-installation that reacts to body movement, not music, emphasizing the era’s aesthetics of form: post-industrialism—aiming to look aesthetically relevant.

An endeavor to revisit and explore the core notions of this movement: autonomy, technology, creativity, and civil liberty. Rave as a movement of such proportion remains unpacked mainly as a cultural phenomenon. Mainly focusing on Autonomy/Civil liberty: Raves themselves have been theorized as what anarcho-theorist Hakim Bey defines as “Temporary Autonomous Zones.” Its own logic is based on the collective. It stood for the communitarian we, in opposition to neoliberal individualism’s atomization, providing an ‘open’ infrastructure for culture and self-expression.
