SYNTHETIC SEDUCTION

Through video and sculpture, Synthetic Seduction creates a playful and interactive space that examines the influence of technology on our intimate experiences.
With a common interest in how technology changes human social behavior, Deja and Munk explores the relevant question posed by the transhumanist thinker Mark O'Connell: "Can a machine learn to be a human?"

Through a futuristic laboratory that simulates the familiar hospital room, Munk introduces pulsating and carnal interactive sculptures that simulate artificial forms of physical presence. Each is animated in its own unique way and is seen together with video works by Deja. The videos create a playful contrast between algorithmic logic and romantic clichés. With the works, the two artists invite deeper reflection on what love and intimacy are, and whether these can be replaced by surrogates produced by the unprecedented possibilities of the technology.
