Film Screening

Wednesday 12 January, 6.15 pm

Irish Film Institute
6 Eustace St, Temple Bar
Dublin D02 PD85
Ireland


aemi presents it's latest film series 'So, what did you do today? Films selected by Isabel Nolan'. The programme, curated by artist Isabel Nolan, illuminates her wider practice and celebrates "odd and gloriously impractical actions". Encapsulating Nolan's words within the rich mix of international work is Daria Martin's 16 film Soft Materials.

Soft Materials was shot in the Artificial Intelligence Lab at the University of Zurich where scientists research ‘embodied artificial intelligence’. The film introduces robots to two performers, trained in body awareness, acutely sensitive to the nuances of movement, primed to mimic the robots in a play of reciprocity. Creating intimate relationships that are in turns tender, funny and eerie, they bend flexible human fantasy around tough materials.
