Simulation artist Lawrence Lek and Hyperdub artist/founder Kode9 present a live audio-visual show inspired by themes of full automation and post-work utopias set in the shadow of the existential threats posed by artificial intelligence.
The Nøtel is a fully automated, luxury hotel in a post-scarcity world in which the only thing in short supply is humans.
The performance guides the audience on a first-person/drone tour through its uncanny architecture. In sprawling chambers, deep within slick glass corridors, they encounter warped spaces, quantum clouds, gravitational pools, dancing voids and holograms of the dead.
