Keskustelutilaisuus Holly Herndonin ja Sougwen Chungin kanssa

Holly Herndon’s performance “IP” featuring Holly+ and the Philomela Choir will take place at Helsinki Festival on 26.8. and 28.8. at Pannuhalli, Cable Factory.

For EMMA’s exhibition In Seach of the Present Sougwen Chung creates a large-scale kinetic installation featuring Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 5 (D.O.U.G. 5) robots.
