• CONTRAVERSE Book Release with DROUGHT SPA, XUXA SANTAMARIA, and Rebecca Heikkila at CounterPulse

    Enter a full-body sensorium of live dance, counter-forensics and information overload. Timeless, Infinite Light presents CONTRAVERSE, an immersive environment and live performance by artist duo DROUGHT SPA on the main stage of CounterPulse. In CONTRAVERSE, human-computer interaction mutates the visual and sonic landscape, activating a reverse Turing test: here the computers assess whether or not we are human. This event will also feature a subversive thrill-popping performance by XUXA SANTAMARIA and a tableau-vivant-style living installation by REBECCA HEIKKILA. 

    We’ve brought together these brilliant performers to celebrate the release of CONTRAVERSE, a new poetry book by alex cruse. Timeless will provide the spectacle, champagne, and some high-intensity Leo-season vibes. Dance, drink, re-map your relation to the grid, and seize control of your cyborg body.
