Caspar Sonnen will hold n exclusive showcase and talk about some of the best works of interactive and immersive documentary art at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) on February 7th, 07:30 PM. Sonnen will showcase a variety of projects across myriad digital and physical platforms, from groundbreaking interactive art made in 2007 (when he founded the pioneering DocLab program at IDFA) to the emergence of virtual reality and artificial intelligence in immersive art installations.
The event includes guest speakers presenting various projects developed with IDFA DocLab over the years. Surveillance artist Dries Depoorter will present his viral sensation Die With Me, a chatroom for people with less than 5% battery power on their phone. Francesca Panetta and Halsey Burgund from MIT will present a short film screening of Moon Disaster, a filmic experiment in speculative nonfiction and artificial intelligence; and food artist Emilie Baltz will present the edible Eat Tech Kitchen project, winner of the DocLab Award for Immersive Non-Fiction.
