“I like to think (it has to be!) of a cybernetic ecology where we are free of our labors and joined back to nature, returned to our mammal brothers and sisters, and all watched over by machines of loving grace.” - from a poem All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace (1967) by Richard Brautigan

During the last two decades, we faced massive datafication and networked digital technologies. The subject of ‘we’ refers not only to humans, but also beyond humans. In a hyper-connected environment, how might collaborations between humans, nonhumans, and machines create an alternative planetary living? By imagining new eco-social structures based on the question, we speculate about interspecies futures, whether through imagination, talking, listening, scientific researching and humor. Likewise, we examine prescientific cultures - animisms, myths, beliefs - to see how the world was connected in a holistic way, and what a post-digital earth can learn from that. In our audiovisual works, workshops, online platforms, and cross-elemental works, we explore those emerging practices that are full experiences, sensible, and relatable through utopian and dystopian scenarios.
jjjyyy is an artist duo (Hyeseon Jeong, Seongmin Yuk), focusing on the examination of new narratives through their audiovisual works. Their narratives address new eco-social structures, by speculating a hyper-connected environment, where humans, nonhumans, and machines create an alternative planetary living. They are working on the project "The Backpack of Wings".
