Cannupa Hanska Luger, Ursula Mayer, Suzanne Treister: Spiritual Technology
Spiritual Technology features three films by different artists exploring how relations between spirituality and technology shift over time, including links between science, myth, belief systems, and our connection to the planet. Cannupa Hanska Luger’s We Live Future Ancestral Technologies Entry Log is an Indigenous science fiction film that describes a mass exodus from earth by those who destroyed much of it and those remaining behind to repair it. Ursula Mayer’s Atom Spirit is also set in the near future, one of increasing biomedical innovations, that follows a group of evolutionary geneticists creating a cryogenically frozen arc of DNA from all forms of life. Meanwhile, Suzanne Treister’s HFT The Gardener tells the story of a stock trader who experiments with various hallucinogenic states while watching high-frequency algorithmic trading graph patterns.
