Self-Study – Open Lab, Lecture performance with exhibiting artist Daniel Landau in collaboration wit

Tuesday, September 3 at 7 pm

From Narcissus’ reflection in the pond through the navel-gazing selfie, the concepts of self, body image, and self-awareness are in constant flux within human-technology co-evolution. In recent years, the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI), robotics, and Extended Reality (XR) technologies introduced new dimensions to this evolving process, which questions the boundaries of the physical body and free will, as well as their impact on our identity structures. In this lecture/performance, Daniel Landau will discuss the speculative lab experiment he conducted with Maya Magnat, titled Self Study – Open Lab, that involved the experience of virtual embodiment — extending the boundaries of the body and its physical presence.

Costume Design: Tamar Ben Knan | Lighting Design: Alexey Antonovski | Producer: Shimrit Gil Academic Partners: Dr. Efrat Magidov, Dr. Orly Idan, Kobi Tiberg, Dr. Yulia Golland, Dr. Béatrice Hasler, Bennet Hübbe, Prof. Doron Friedman

This event is being held as part of a series of public programs organized in conjunction with the exhibition“Stumbling Through the Uncanny Valley: Sculpture and Self in the Age of Computer Generated Imagery”.

*The lecture will be held in Hebrew.

Entrance: 10 NIS Seating is limited, tickets required.
