The performative piece is inspired by the idea of universal computation and systems theory. This way each person (performer) is understood as a similar but unique cellular-automaton-like element with his own rules. Through interaction with living or non-living objects the rules of the person change, thus creating more complex and different patterns. Through the performance we discuss the questions of natural / unnatural, individual / collective decision-making and the idea that all subjects and objects in the environment have an effect on each other.
As a performative piece, (e)merging properties is developed in the framework of "The Mess with Tech, Sense and Thinking" (MTST), a collaboration between Bauhaus University and Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee for transmediale / conversationpiece 2016.
It was shown at the HKW Berlin during transmediale 2016.
