The Body is the Message

FILE Electronic Language International Festival’s theme for FILE SÃO PAULO 2018 is “The Body is the Message“. Despite the apparent allusion to the world of the cyborg in the title, it refers to a different connection between technology and the body – to the aesthetic and artistic connection that is formed, which operates separately from the communicative flow of information and data – the appreciation of a work of art and of the way in which it is made.
For some time, artists have appropriated for their own use technologies from the field of medicine – in particular those devices that record the behavior of the internal organs of the human body – its heartbeats, brain waves, and breaths. The established haptic, tactile, interface with electronic arts, founded on vision, on icons, is being bypassed by the measurement of organic activity, which allows the viewer to interface and interact directly with the work of art. Thought, as expressed by brain waves, changes as a function of mood – the emotions of the viewer directly influence the work via pre-selected parameters. Not only may those emotions change the outcome of a work of art, but they may also modify the composition of a painting or music as it develops, in real time, so that the work is modified to match the emotions of each individual – each version unique, an edition of one, made for that individual alone. Works of art are no longer universal, becoming a personal and singular experience for all that view them.
The human body is also being challenged in other ways. The advent of immersive technologies such as virtual reality goggles and other devices is confronting it with paradoxical reactions and alterities, with other states of being. Through their use, artists are constructing a new and hybrid art form in which the body reacts and acts in at least two simultaneous realities.
In the same way that the topological paradox of August Ferdinand Moebius’ Strip has inspired generations of artists and architects; artists are using mixed realities to explore multiple aesthetic paradoxes in their search for innovative poetics. If the simple fold of the Moebius Strip makes it impossible to be definitive about what is the inside or what is the outside of the strip; in mixed reality it is the full immersion devices that confront us with a similar paradox – where our body automatically reacts to stimuli that do not exist in physical reality; where our senses are no longer in synchrony with the simultaneity of these realities; where our behavior is transformed; where THE BODY IS THE MESSAGE.

Ricardo Barreto e Paula Perissinotto
Conception and Organization of FILE



Akihito Ito + Issey Takahashi – Syncdon II – Japan
“SyncDon II” induces your heartbeat to synchronize with someone’s heartbeat by auditory, tactile, and visual stimuli. The heartbeat synchronization implies primitive human communication that is based on emotions and circadian rhythm. – Objective Realities – China, India, Italy & Switzerland
“Objective Realities” (OR) is a VR experience that changes the perspective from a human point of view to the one of an object. In OR you will be able to see and act in a virtual smart home with the capabilities and limitations of a specific object and listen to the invisible chatter that happens between networked things and the home.

Felix Hardmood Beck & Barkin Simsek – Augmented Architecture Installation – Germany & Turkey
“Augmented Architecture Installation” is a small-scale architectural model of the FIESP building that gathers projections of videoart works that were exhibited in FILE LED SHOW of 2016 and 2017 and new works selected for this edition.

Frank Kolkman & Juuke Schoorl – Outrospectre – Netherlands
“Outrospectre” is an experimental proposal for reconciling people with death through simulating out-of-body experiences. Recent (para) psychological research, however, suggests that the sensation of drifting outside of one’s own body. Using virtual reality, this project investigates unanswered questions about mortality and ‘end of life’.

Håkan Lidbo, Max Björverud & David Åhrström – Light Pong – Sweden
“Light Pong” is a game where you shoot rays of light to each other. Different light paths generate different tones. The games levels up the better you play, with multiple light and sound combinations. Find an opponent player. Step on the 6 yellow hexagons on each side. The rules are not definite so it’s up to the visitors to come up with new rules.

Josefin Lindebrink – HABITAT – Sweden
At “HABITAT”, the participant lie on a structure that oscillates in response to biofeedback from its occupant. Throughout the exhibition period, the installation will work to achieve a sustainable balance, a restful or tense whole from the sum of its parts. Yet a conscientious change of behavior by individual participants will result in an evolution of the environment.

Keigo Matsumoto, Yohei Yanase, Takuji Narumi & Yuki Ban – Unlimited Corridor – Japan
“Unlimited Corridor” is a VR system that enables you to experience walking around a vast virtual world in narrow physical space by manipulating spatial perception. This experience will be an opportunity to intuition that the spatial perception built from our senses is relative and uncertain.

Ludmila Rodrigues – Polytope – Brazil & Netherlands
“Polytope” is a lightweight, tractable structure that engages the visitor in a space-bodily investigation. It is rigid and at the same time, tractable. A void which takes space. Its volume is juxtaposed and re-arranged through the action of the visitor. The movement provoked in the sculpture, in turn, influences the body of the visitor.

Mélanie Courtinat, Salomé Chatriot & Iseult Perrault – After Eden – France
“After Eden” is an interactive installation using augmented reality on acrylic paintings, aiming to blur the boundaries of digital and classic forms of artistic expressions. “After Eden” illustrates the utopia of a new and playful form of visual paradise; a luxuriant space which contains both surprise and danger. By merging the virtual and the real.

Özge Samanci & Gabriel Caniglia – You are the Ocean – United States
This interactive installation allows participants to control a digitally simulated ocean using only their brainwaves. Calm seas and storms alike are powered by the viewer’s thoughts; the sheer act of concentration can conjure a squall or sunshine. Participants intentionally control their thinking while surrounded by the magnified consequence of their thoughts.

Peter William Holden – Arabesque – Germany
“Arabesque” is a kinetic art work composed of life sized cast human body parts. When in motion, the installation becomes a time-based performance and can be viewed from a multitude of angles, revealing a kaleidoscope of beautiful patterns and shapes created from the human form.

Peter William Holden – Vicious Circle – Germany
“Vicious Circle”. With its relentless movements acts out its role oblivious and undaunted by either its own destruction or the destruction around it. Maybe, it dances to the beat of progress or to a different tune with its outstretched arms beckoning the observer for redemption!

Salomé Chatriot – Distal Extension – France
“Distal Extension” is a criticism of the way people consume data, and a projection in space of the user’s intimacy through the externalization of his own vital functions. The goal was to built a physical immersive environment that combines electronic and digital elements to extend spatially the user’s corporal limits.

Stella Speziali – Tangible Worlds – Switzerland
“Tangible Worlds” is an experiment that offers an experience of sensory immersion. The combination of visual, sound and touch leads the user beyond a simple observation, but create the feeling of a full immersion in a parallel universe. We intervene in this new universe by touching it.

Bruno Martelli & Ruth Gibson – Man A VR – United Kingdom
“MAN A VR” is an immersion in a ‘Dazzle’ camouflage environment – surrounding the viewer with choreographed dancers.

Studio APVIS – The new body VR – Netherlands
“The New Body” is an animation and dance experiment in virtual reality. Visitors build a human body and watch a performance in which there are no limitations of body and gravity.

Martina Menegon – Plug your nose and try to hum – Italy
“Plug your nose and try to hum” is a virtual reality installation in which the user is surrounded by floating miniature bodies and when using controllers, which also function as light sources, it is possible to interact freely with the artist’s 3D body.

JF Malouin – Les trois Grâces – Canada
“Les Trois Grâces” is an interactive experience depicting three daughters of gods and semi-gods, symbols of perfection, beauty, intellect and purity since the Renaissance. Classic patterns of beauty are challenged by this film as they are transposed into an interactive digital platform.


FILE LED SHOW 2018 : Combat and Collaboration

According to the Laws of Thermodynamics, the universe is moving towards a state of maximum entropy. Living beings are positioned somewhere between the organization and the disorganization of molecules, with a tendency towards disorder. Devices which produce images, such as the camera, the film camera, and the computer fight against this tendency. These devices are intended to make visible situations which are unlikely from the point of view of the universe, since they create images – which are ordered information – in opposition to the more likely situation – the universal tendency to disinformation (increased entropy).
However, at the same time that they produce images which are unlikely from the point of view of the universe, such devices create images that are more likely from the point of view of the device itself. Vilém Flusser shines a light on the contradiction inherent in such technical images as photographs, film, video and computer scans and takes on the challenge to produce images that are unlikely from the point of view of the devices that produce them. In other words, what is at stake is the “determination within the programs”.
Such thinking can be revisited nowadays, where computers and algorithms are ever present. Software fights the tendency to increased entropy by supporting the production of various “digital objects” (i.e. information) but collaborate with this tendency to act in an analogous way, i.e. in moving towards the probable. There is, therefore, a relationship of collaboration and combat between the devices that produce images and the universal tendency towards increased entropy. Combat implies the creation of information. Collaboration is the result of an analogy with the tendency to situations that are more likely from the point of view of the device and its programs.
The exhibition “Combat and Collaboration”, which forms part of the FILE LED Show 2018 is intended to aid our understanding of our relationship with the various existing programs. It includes six works that address issues that permeate digital systems, such as their underlying structures and the ability to produce standards, variations and points of restoration. The autonomy of these systems can be understood as a metaphor for our freedom of action concerning various devices and technical, political and cultural programmes. Even if there is an imminent risk of indirect collaboration, it is necessary to align them by means of variations and experiments that support resistance movements in “situations less likely.”
The exhibition also presents three exhibitions in the SESI Digital Arts Gallery which result from partnerships with international centers dedicated to training young artists: the Department of Digital Arts of the Pratt Institute, New York, the American University of Sharjah, and the Abu Dhabi Campus of the University of New York. These initiatives are aimed at to facilitate the use of the festival’s exhibition space as a platform for experimentation open to emerging artists. The four exhibitions present 25 works by Brazilian and foreign artists.
The FILE LED Show 2018 in the SESI Art Gallery also presents its collection of video art, which has been put together over the last three years. Elements of the collection are included in an installation by Felix Beck and Barkin Simsek, of New York University Abu Dhabi.

In 2018 Brazilian animation is receiving special attention internationally. The Annecy
International Animation Film Festival in France, the most important animated film festival in the world, honors Brazilian animation and its 100 years of history this year.
This reflects not only the growth of the Brazilian audiovisual sector in general and animation in particular in both numbers and quality, but also that incentives from various public and private bodies are succeeding in generating more jobs and opportunities.
According to the Ministry of Culture, Brazil released seven animated feature films in 2017. Until then, the most productive year over the last 22 years was 2014, when four animated features were released. In 2018, a grand total of 25 animated feature films are in production in Brazil. Over the last ten years, the number of animated TV series produced in Brazil has risen from two to 44, while an uncountable number of emerging artists are making short animated films.
Since 2011, FILE Anima+ has been responsible for bringing to public attention some of the best of these animated short films, ranging from experimental work to the output of top international and Brazilian studios, as well as the work of students studying at top animation schools. Over its seven years, it has presented hitherto unseen works from all over the world. FILE Anima+’s partnership with other international animation festivals such as Japan Media Arts, Siggraph, and SICAF, among others, has expanded its repertoire of animated works, including c. 400 in every edition of the festival.
In addition to a wide range of foreign artists, this year FILE Anima+ is showing animations by Brazilian artists, in particular the works “Lesbos” and “Trapped in a Cosmic Distopy” by the Espirito Santo artist Bárbara Cani Reis. Another highlight is FILE Online, a web platform which gives the general public access all FILE Anima+ 2018 content.
Brazil now occupies a central place in animation, and all those involved in the most diverse stages of the production of a work deserve to be recognized. FILE Anima+ is proud to be part of this new and exciting cycle and the work we show this year is only the beginning of an avalanche of innovative works which are yet to emerge, and which will certainly be shown by us in the coming years.

Electronic language is to be found in our daily lives in the new forms – rapid and incorporal – in which we communicate and propagate content. The creation and appreciation of art have also adapted to the new language, embracing the understanding that the aesthetic experience can happen outside a physical exhibition space.
It is in this context that FILE International Electronic Language Festival is embarking on a new proposal. FileOnline includes works that have the potential to be experienced in both the physical and virtual spaces. By including visual, sound and networked works, FILEOnline is addressed to the restless; those who remain connected with each other even when physically distant, those who seek out an aesthetic experience in the streets, in their homes, or through the screens of their cell phones.
If the body is the message, that message can be propagated beyond the physical space, because we also form part of an immaterial body, a body formed of creatures whose being is in cyberspace, inhabiting multiple places simultaneously.
