TransAtlantic Sci-Fi

Laboratory – 2022

Transatlantic Sci-fi was a laboratory run parallelly with participants located in Oslo (NO) and Medellin (CO). The Lab is a horizontal framework focused on shared processes and findings rather than on pursuing a fixed outcome. Holding space for trial and error, the laboratory seeks to spark dialogue around crossing points of observation and diverse perspectives. Ultimately the Lab is a format in which the concept of authorship becomes irrelevant giving space to a hybrid voice.

Through the exchange of sounds, pictures and texts the participants of TransAtlantic Sci-fi took the overlapping of distant geographies and cultures as a study material to produce a collaborative multilingual audio piece portraying a hybrid cityscape between Oslo and Medellin. The allied platforms for this project were TentHaus -OSL- and Parque Explora -MED.
