Chris Salter & Alexandre Saunier - SNN#3: Forms of the Living

Chris Salter and Alexandre Saunier's previous collaborations include SNN #0: Totem, a LED light display responding to machine learning and part of the AI: More Than Human exhibition at London's Barbican Centre in 2019; SNN #1: The Speed of Thought Itself, an audiovisual performance at the IMPAKT festival in Utrecht in 2019; and SNN #2: Light/Space/Modulator at the Barcelona BCN_LLUM light festival in 2020.

Chris Salter is an artist, professor, and a co-director of the Hexagram network as well as holding several other research positions. His research focuses on multidisciplinary experimentation at the intersection of art, perception, the senses, and new technologies. Alexandre Saunier is an artist and doctoral researcher at Concordia University. He is currently working on a PhD exploring live light performance and relationships between humans and machines.

The third instalment in the Spiking Neuron Networks series, SNN #3: Forms of the Living takes place simultaneously in three distant locations: live in Montréal, Berlin and Tokyo. Using light, video, sound, VR, artificial life algorithms and neural networks, Salter, Saunier and Ikegami orchestrate a global experience that while internationally shared, is impossible to grasp in its entirety.
