Zahvale: studentima, osoblju i gostujućim predavačima s godina 2016-2018 s HZT Berlin SoDA.

Više ne želimo odlagati napredak tehnologije…zar ne? Možemo barem probati doći do neobičnog susreta s istom? Sredovječni Dječak i Zastarjelo Računalo te kako su zajedno našli put vani potraga je za prekidom naše, sada već „prirodne“, veze s elektronskim uređajima te poziv na drukčiji oblik odnosa. Krećući od prerevne tjelovježbe do beskorisnih fetišističkih odnosa „Sredovječni Dječak…“ istražuje dubinu računalnog sna gdje elektronski uređaji i ljudi egzistiraju u paradoksalnim oblicima.

Work title:  the Middle-aged Boy, the Bygone Computer, and how they found their way out together

We no longer want to hold off the progress of technology… do we? At least we can attempt to reach a new strange encounter with it. the Middle-aged Boy, the Bygone Computer and how they found their way out together is a search to interrupt our normalized relationship with digital devices, and summon us into a different affection. Moving from overzealous bodywork to useless fetishist union, the Middle-aged Boy… delves into a deep computer dream, where electronic devices and human are taken to a paradoxical state of being.
