A video-installation project
"TRASHBOT is a curious rush of mysterious storytelling, surreal imagery and subtle references...a film of technonatural angst, TRASHBOT uses myth to approach an understanding of our scrambled modern bodies." - Thinking Dance, Christina Catanese
/ We finally found her, in the darkness of a dirt road. We almost hit her/.
The journey to a cyborg deity via randomly accessed memories, #trash, and a techno-spiritual shed-hunting. TRASHBOT is seen from the eye of The Researcher, who, determined to uncover the truth behind a local lore, sets out to trace, map, and record her origins and the collective history she carries within her. As the search deepens, the Researcher’s own histories begin to emerge and mutate, spiraling both hunter and hunted into unchartered wilderness.
TRASHBOT is a new video work of contemporary mythology that contemplates memory storage, obsolescence and the embedded algorithms of our cross-temporal bodies. A virtual world premiere by a new collaborative trio consisting of visual artist Aysha Hamouda, and performance-based artists Sarah Finn and Garvis-Giovanni Deval, for their first Philadelphia Fringe.
Made in collaboration by Aysha Hamouda, Sarah Finn and Garvis-Giovanni Deval.
Presented as part of FringeArts 2020.
