In this lecture performance, Zach Blas delves into the key concepts behind his new work CULTUS.

Taking us through research into organisations like The Way of The Future Church, theories like Ray Kurzweil’s spiritual machine, and transhumanism in sci-fi and religion, Blas traces the emergence of an AI-based religiosity, where human flesh transforms into biometric data, and emotional tears are transformed into a symbolic language of sacred quantification.

The performance lecture will be followed by a conversation with arebyte curator Rebecca Edwards exploring the installation further.

This lecture performance takes place over Zoom. The meeting link will be sent to your email when you have booked tickets on Eventbrite.
