Towards an oscillating truth.
CHRONOLALIA explores truth’s fluidity across various timeframes. Directed by time-sensitive microbiome species, laboratory data and AI, visitors utilize whole-body vibration and an artificial voice to traverse internal, environmental, and AI-driven timelines. This ritual forms a shared meta-organism that embodies the “subjectless subjectivity of technology,” fostering a polytemporal, multi-perspective acoustic response system.
CHRONOLALIA explores truth as a post-anthropocentric, fluid entity influenced by various timeframes. Directed by time-sensitive oral microbiome species, data on the ratio of the oral microbiome to phonetic vibrations, and AI, visitors engage in a ritual, using an artificial voice to navigate internal, and environmental timers. Full body vibration serves as biomedia, facilitating interaction with the microbiome and self-transformation.
This strong temporal subjectivity gives rise to a de/synchronized meta-organism, embodying a “subjectless subjectivity of technology.” The audience weaves diverse temporalities into a shared polytemporal feedback system and sonic time experience. This experience offers multi-perspectival authorship and a nomadic concept of time.
