IDFA DocLab presents How to Dance or Die with Technology

Join us at SXSW for the 10th annual IDFA DocLab showcase at SXSW

As tech addiction is disrupting the human condition, interactive art has become more than just mesmerizing and cool. But could it also disrupt our own behavior and help us redefine our relation to technology? The 10th annual IDFA DocLab Showcase at SXSW invites you to find out, by playing, dancing and dying together with technology. Bring your smartphone and join co-founder of innovation studio LavaLab Klasien van de Zandschulp for a physical round of DuoDisco dancing (don’t forget your headphones!), and hear the crazy story of digital surveillance artist Dries Depoorter and his latest work Die With Me. Created with David Suprenant and presented with IDFA DocLab, Die With Me is a chatroom app for people with less than 5% battery life. Launched in January, as tech was once again proclaimed ‘the new smoking’, this interactive artwork has become one of the biggest viral hits of 2018 so far.

This session is moderated by Ingrid Kopp (Electric South) and Yorinde Segal (IDFA), curated by IDFA DocLab, the New Media program of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
