Al¿ve – Arvid&Marie (App installation)

Al¿ve is installation questioning the emergence of digital life: a digital species that lives on a personal app. Conceived according to the same criteria than biological life, Al¿ve makes us question the possibility of artificial life and its consequences.

The emergence of more and more complex computer programs raises the question of alternative living entities. These new autonomous systems induce an expansion of the spectrum of beings out of the biological field. This controversy stimulates subjective points of view on this essential question. Can there be a digital life form?

Arvid&Marie is a duo of artists, experience designers and technological adventurers always aiming to discover new ways to stretch our world. Together Arvid Jense and Marie Caye collaborate on their shared passion for art and technology.

Through the use of interactive objects and performative storytelling, Arvid&Marie use their collaborative effort to explore post-human theories, focusing their creative attention on practical cybernetics and autonomous machines. They believe that researching how humans express themselves, philosophically and technologically,  can lead to long lasting, positive change.
