Hybris is the name of a kinetic video installation accompanied by a small performance and a musical composition by Daniel Cross written for headphones. It was commissioned by Trendbureau Overijssel and Atelier Overijssel and curated by Kunstenlab to envision one of four possible future scenarios on how my local province can, within their policy, relate to the landscape and what this means for us living in it. All of this to encourage law-makers, politicians, entrepreneurs and government workers to make better choices.
Conceptually the installation regards the following statement:
“Men has full confidence that technological innovations of the future will address the problems of that future in an adequate way“
Initially created and presented at Klooster Nieuw Sion during a conference called Situatie Geweizigd (Altered Circumstances) in Februari and up next and renewed at Pop-up Museum Verdronken Land. Compagnietheater Amsterdam 25 and 26 of May organise by the Ludwig Ensemble.
This is what happens: “A moment dazzled by self-delusion or selfishness prior to overstep a border.“
