Elevate kicks off festival & arts program with Lorem’s Distrust Everything

, 4 August 2021

Elevate Festival begins its 17th edition in Austria with a new installation called Distrust Everything from Lorem, the Italian transmedia artist whose practice meditates on political experiences via machine-learning technologies. The festival features a music and arts program, including acts such as Nene H, Brian Eno, and more.

Distrust Everything opens Elevate Festival’s arts program, a platform curated by Berit Gilma for artists to apply critical theory to emerging and hybrid creative disciplines. Lorem‘s installation incorporates 3D, AI systems, and sound design, examining the relationship between artificial intelligence and representations of truth. Including production from Karol Sudolski and Acre, the four part episodic project portrays reality, situating violence as a circumstance that brings awareness to systematic reification.

Elevate Festival runs from August 4 to 8, 2021.
