Are We There Yet?
“Are We There Yet?” is an artistic research on/ with / in transition in the framework of Transition Days Luxembourg. “How to live together in a one planet world?” is the overall question this year’s Transition Days ask. While examining 9 different topics over a period of 9 months, such as food, energy or transport. Using the metaphor of a house – with 9 different rooms – to deal with these topics, it seemed accurate to take a look at these rooms from an artistic point of view. In order to allow another kind of access and to build a bridge to a more imaginative or metaphorical as well as to an assumed subjective analysis of these topics. Therefore, there will be 9 theme related artistic video works.
The artists have been chosen by Nora Wagner, on behalf of CELL (Center for Ecological Learning Luxembourg) – the transition hub, based on her ambition to display the points of view of a diverse range of artists, competent in the field of the respective thematics.
The video “High Tech, Low Human”, by Carole Louis, shows one of the possible outcomes of an encounter between a post human failure and a defective artificial intelligence.
The video “Food Correspondences”, by Taina Guedes and Nora Wagner, is the result of an exchange between the two artists, sharing their hopes, fears, memories and imagination through the universal language of food.
