The Riot of Springs, 2021

The Riot of Springs is a short film of auto generating robotic poetry commissioned by SLANT in 2021 for the ‘Writing Bodies’ event. In this short film LuzginaMcShane animated and transformed typographic forms into actors in space. These Hybrids generated meaning through the interaction of their robotic bodies. As a result, they created an uncontrolled ballet of automata, a world where cybernetic theory is inverted from a controlling mechanism, to one that encourages dissonance and chance.
