Doppelgänger - Symbiosis (2020)
by IMUU (Weilu Ge, Kelon Cen)
Doppelgänger - Symbiosis (2020) is a composed theatre project exploring the concept of human-machine symbiosis.
It’s an immersive multimedia experience that consists of projection mappings, spatialized sound, interactive sculpture, and performance art.
Symbiosis is the 4th part of the Doppelgänger research project by IMUU that explores the human condition in a futuristic dystopia where machinery analysis and prediction of our mind become possible, data monetization becomes uncontrollable, and the discrepancy between machines and humans become blurred.
The Doppelgänger series started with a creative survey into the idea of surveillance capitalism in contemporary society and following an inquiry into self-exploration and 3 consciousness as the mind is a multi-dimensional space. Earlier doppelgänger variations explored and examined the processes of extracting, analyzing, and reflecting between the amalgamation of humans and machines, digital, physical, and spiritual doppelgängers. Doppelgänger IV - Symbiosis continues with the previous inquiries and extends into a further discussion of human-machine relationships, doppelgängers in between space dimensions.
