Breakthrough proposes an experimental, interdisciplinary event constructing a new field of research and play. Breakthrough signals the skewed extension and plain rupture with a series of earlier actions [London, Bergen, Berlin] exploring the material basis of technology and expanding on the practice of life coding.
The term breakthrough describes a sudden shift in understanding or technologies, and, finally, a clearing (Lichtung), an entry into
unknown and unmapped territories. An enclosure is breached allowing access to another, totally unforeseen state or space. Communication is thus implied, a new form of exchange, perhaps between two otherwise unconnected domains, between the living and the dead, between many worlds. What does the sheer possibility of a breakthrough imply for communication between the past and the future?
