A Set of non computable Things, Charlotte Eifler, 2017

The video work creates a fictional and surreal setting. Two trainees practice exercises of non-computability within a training camp of a visual resistance group. They test their options for a fluid concept of identities and entities – against a static understanding of representation. An algorithm constantly scores their achievements. On their way, they encounter the genre of the road movie – a white, masculine narrative. Within its images and implications, the trainees try to restrict and reinterpret their own legibility through ambiguities, imitations, and senses apart from visuality.
