Produced by Outpost Artists Resources and hosted by Roulette Intermedium, Folly Systems comes to Brooklyn as a two-night festival featuring the work of a wide group of artists working in the intersection of performance and media art. Using media and technologies not as an end in themselves but as non-neutral creative strategies, the works in the program utilize tools that range from VR, custom projectors, wooden artisanal instruments, communication media and DIY video interfaces among others. What is the difference between a spoon and virtual reality? Is one more technological than the other? Despite differences in materials and technical complexity, the same creative gesture is made across media over and over again as if we were endlessly rediscovering the wheel. Curated by Cecilia Lopez.
