James Bridle

Se ti sabir

GB • 2019 • 19' • kleur • digitaal

My delight on a shining night

GB • 2018 • 32' • kleur • digitaal

De Britse schrijver en kunstenaar James Bridle (1980) focust zich op de discussie over technologie, digitalisering, de aard van intelligentie en de gevolgen hiervan voor onze samenleving. Zijn kritische films nodigen uit tot reflectie zonder opdringerig te zijn of terug te vallen op geschreven of gesproken argumentatie, zoals in My delight on a shining night (2018).

Deze film documenteert de flamingo-populatie in het zoutmeer van Limassol die van de jaren ’70 tot 2008 dienst deed als uitzendplek van een ‘number station’. Deze stations zonden eindeloos lang reeksen nummers uit, waarschijnlijk gecodeerde spionageboodschappen, een veelgebruikte techniek in de Koude Oorlog. Volgens Bridle is My delighteen film over “the shimmering infrastructure of control and surveillance and the exuberant life of the birds and ourselves, between information and ecology, between computational prediction and embodied observation.”

Se ti sabir (2019) is een monoloog en essay bestaande uit shots van enkele stukken land behorende tot de ‘Maastricht Formatie’ en een reflectie over verschillende vormen van intelligentie. Centraal staat onze houding tegenover “non-human” vormen van kennis. In een tijdperk waarin we steeds meer leren over verschillende vormen van intelligentie die onze wereld kunnen bevolken, creëren we tegelijk computersystemen die in toenemende mate onze cognitieve en creatieve processen overnemen. Se ti sabir tracht een nieuwe houding te verbeelden tegenover andere vormen van intelligentie, die ons mogelijk toelaat niet alleen elkaar beter te begrijpen maar ook de wezens die ons omringen en die we zelf creëren.
