A highlight of the program is the Australian premiere of test pattern, a stunning large scale immersive installation by renowned Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda.

Bodies increasingly perform as extended operational systems, with ‘mixed’ and ‘augmented’ realities. The contemporary chimera is a hybrid biological machine and virtual system. Aliveness and affect are expressed in choreographies of remote interface and interaction, of both ‘fractal’ and ‘phantom’ flesh.
