A Better Chance to Gain Enough Entropy was produced and presented in the frame of Quadriennale 16, section De Rerum Rurale curated by Matteo Lucchetti, at Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Roma.

 

A Better Chance to Gain Enough Entropy is the third of a body of work related to internet technologies and the digitalization of our lives and nourished by a research on hacker culture (2015-ongoing) and a Master of Science in Digital Currencies (2019).  Up to now, the series is also composed by: In The Corridor of Cyberspace (artist book and talks, Strauhof Museum, Zurich 2016), A Bit for Your Thought (installation, Carrosserie, Basel, 2016),  I Never Think of the Future. It Comes Soon Enough (performance, Illuminate Festival, Zug, 2018).

A group of nine singers hack the space of the Quadriennale and its different exhibitions. The choir aggregate each time in a different formation and perform various compositions for small groups of spectators. They sing texts I composed, and the writings are based on the research I conducted  between Bruxelles and Geneva, on and with hackers. The singers are members of a classical choir, and we built the melody through a process of horizontal guided improvisation lead.

In the space also, a led installation with handwritten texts creates an asynchronous dialogue with the performance.
