Installation Opening: Cybercafé
The opening of Cybercafé, exploring the problematic continuum between authenticity and inauthenticity in algorithmic environments through personalised post-fictional identities. At Nerdka, in the ruins of a cybercafé in a decaying courtyard, guests will be given access to pre-set computer interfaces that include social-media accounts, search histories, communicator conversations and downloaded software. These serve as portals to a post-rave VRchat metaverse room, playing with the elusive line between user autonomy and dispossessed commodified online identities. A website will provide additional theoretical texts, diagrams and a guidebook related to the project. The installation is open everyday until Saturday the 16th from 3pm - 7pm.
