Unsafe Distance, Enter3 Festival, Prague (2007)
Showcase of artistic practices that explore issues of safety, environment, and human/non-human identity. Many of the exhibiting artists have worked closely with scientists. Most of them have integrated emerging technologies in order to examine phenomena that may have stayed undisclosed. The artworks exemplify how fragile the notion of distance is in our society. What types of distance do men and women experience in the times of advanced scientific instruments which pilot our both private and public lives? What are the sounds from dangerous places like? Who is afraid of new teratologies? Do we live on a voodoo planet?
