The Interventions exhibition features works that engage with contemporary cultural discourse and political reality, challenging audiences to consider digital artifacts and practices that reflect and intervene in matters of the environment, social justice, and our relation to the habitus. The program also includes a presentation of works originally made for 3D CAVEs adapted for the Oculus Rift, and in Cinemateket a performance of a “code opera” and screenings of a film about the field of electronic literature.

Works presented in this exhibition include “Inside the Distance” by Sharon Daniel (US), “The End: Death in Seven Colors” by David Clark (CA), “The Wandering: An Interactive Poetry Robot!” by Jason Nelson (AU), “Front” by Donna Leishman (UK), “Faceless Patrons” by Andreas Zingerle (AT) and Linda Kronman (AT), “Death of an Alchemist” by Chris Rodley (AU) and Andrew Burrell (AU), “Cave Classics on Oculus Rift” by Damon Baker (US), “Shy Nag: A Generated Code Opera” by Chris Funkhouser (US), Sonny Rae Tempest (US), and Louis Wells (US), and “The Exquisite Corpus: Issues in Electronic Literature” by Talan Memmott (US).
