Interview with the Third Artist-in-Residence at SACi-E/INPE: Zander Porter – 03/2022

SACi-E is a space-culture and artistic residency platform promoted by CGETE (General Coordination of Engineering and Space Technology) of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE). Its implementation phase started in July/August 2019; Zander is the third resident. In this video, Fabiane M. Borges interviews Zander Porter, presenting a bit of xyr profile and artistic-scientific project to be developed at/after INPE in 2022.

Zander Porter (1994) é artista, trabalha com artes do corpo, performance, dança, formatos digitais. Nasceu em Los Angeles, Califórnia, mas vive em Berlim, apesar de fazer mestrado na Amsterdam University of the Arts (DAS Choreography). Zander é o terceiro artista residente no INPE (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais), no programa SACi-E (Subjetividade, Arte, e Ciências Espaciais) organizado através da curadoria de Fabiane M. Borges com supervisão acadêmica de Paulo Escada – DIEXC e COEPE. A pesquisa de Zander tem o título de “3M0T1NG” – mistura os afetos entre humano e computação, sendo conhecido também como o ciborgue somático. O trabalho artístico de Zander no INPE é realizar um experimento de dança na arquitetura das câmaras anecóicas do LIT (Laboratório de Integração e Testes) do INPE, propondo o corpo como objeto satélite encenando uma matriz social na ausência de colaboradores humanos.
