”_The book* is like the alps - and you are not equipped to climb them _Right - like with sneakers… without jackets… _Right - it’s winter, we have gloves for hand work not for extreme weather”
Strange is the Loop is the second chapter of a trilogy that further develops the exploration of Platform (a multi-functional stage object) started in 2019 with the work Do I look fluid?
Developed in collaboration with Ingrid Cogne and Ruggero Franceschini, Strange is the loop reflects on consciousness as a construct and attempts to artistically examine the complexity of Douglas Hofstadter's considerations, which extend to the fields of neuroscience, philosophy, mathematics and art.
Strange is the Loop is a piece for 2 performers and 2 electronic musicians. Planned for December 2020, the work was shown online in December 2020.
