If I Was A Human Being


If I Was A Human Being is experimental audiovisual research about existential myths and human’s relationship with nature and time. It is a collaborative work which consists of Sascha Kümmel’s dance and choreography, music by Kubilay Öztürk(/KU8I), and Baris Pekcagliyan(0bapek)’s videography and visuals, manipulations generated by code. If I Was A Human Being plays around the concepts of transformation, destruction, and reconstruction. In the process, we researched for ancient human-like gods and their relationship with dance which is an ancient practice itself. The protagonist comes into a time circle where she explores what it means to be a human by doing this ancient ritual. During this ritual, she is going through a transformation process including a lot of destruction, creation, and re-creation. The techniques in the work vary from displacements in time and/or space, data moshing, morphing and pixel sorting on video pieces in addition to 3D creations created with code.

0bapek, /KU8I/, Sascha Kümmel, NCOUNTERS collective
Baris Pekcagliyan is a lens-based artist and a programmer who was born in Ankara/Turkey in 1991. His current work shaped by visual experiments which he plays with the idea of perception of space and time. In his works, he explores the unconscious mind inspired by his reflections from psychoanalytic, spiritual, philosophical concepts and their relationships with myths, nature and personal experiences. To shape his stories, he mostly uses his photographs and videos in an altered space and time by using lens-based techniques, in addition to digital creations made by code. He had a degree in B.Sc Computer Science from Bilkent University in Ankara/Turkey, and he received a degree in M.A Photography from UE in Berlin/Germany where he has been continuing his works.

Superfície de Ataque

The glitch method used on this work was the classic manual datamosh process of removing the key-frames with avidemux. After that, I filmed the screen and added some distortion with the stabilization tool on the video edditing program. This is a video that also explores surveillance and appropriation of image and sound, which is the main focus of my production and research as a visual artist.

Exponential Growth

The exponential growth of the human race, capitalism, and climate change reveals a system on the brink of failure. The ongoing global epidemic COVID-19 has tipped those scales into the red, putting millions at risk. This crisis has made it clear that America needs to rethink its economic practices and nationalize health care. COVID-19 has become the glitch in our system that requires us to step back and question the frameworks we have in place. To consider new pathways for future political, social, and economic realities.
The glitch was created by creating a virtual network for streaming video out and back into the same system. The glitches occur by throttling the networks bitrate and creating a feedback loop by taking the in back to the out. These glitches are similar to slow internets effects on streaming services like Netflix. Streaming services claim they provide you with 4k HD video, and the pixels within that resolution are present; however, they downsample your images based on your connection speed. I cannot help but make correlations to the promises of capitalism and the bootstrapped picturesque life of exponential growth and prosperity.

Eric Souther & Andrew Deutsch
Souther is a new media artist who draws from a multiplicity of disciplines, including anthropology, linguistics, ritual, critical theory, and New Materialism. He develops video instruments that investigate technological & cultural ecologies, agency, and emergence. He looks for new ways of seeing beyond the seductive qualities of an image, and to find unseen connections that help us understand our digital and non-digital existence. His work takes many pathways, which include single-channel video, interactive installation, projection mapping, print, virtual reality, and audiovisual performance.


Deutsch was born in Keene, NH, and received his BFA in Video Art and Printmaking from Alfred University in 1990. He obtained his MFA in Integrated Electronic Art from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1994. Since 1998 Deutsch has released over 14 CDRs of solo electronic music on his Magic If Recordings label. Each Magic If edition showcases his experimental music and graphic art and is distributed exclusively in the United States by Anomalous Records.
