Join Indy Reads in partnership with the IUPUI Indianapolis Arts and Humanities Institute for a talk and demo of Voidopolis by Kat Mustatea on November 9th at 5:30pm!

Voidopolis is a first-of-its-kind augmented reality book from MIT Press Leonardo Series. This hybrid digital artistic and literary project in book form was made to disappear: the book can only be deciphered via an accompanying AR app, and decays over time the way memory might, leaving behind foggy imagery and half-remembered bits of language.

This event is recommended for teens and adults age 13+.

Kat Mustatea is transmedia playwright and artist working at the forefront of live performance and cutting edge technology. Her experiments with language and new narrative forms enlist absurdity, hybridity, and the computational uncanny to dig deeply into what it means to be human in the digital age. Her TED talk, about AI as a form of puppetry, offers a novel take to the meaning of generative art-making. Her work has been presented at a variety of venues including Ars Electronica Linz, New Images Festival Paris, Stanley Picker Gallery London, New York Live Arts, and The Cube at Virginia Tech, among others. She is currently an artist member of ONX Studio (funded by Onassis Foundation) and has recently held residencies and fellowships at TED, New Museum’s NEW INC incubator, Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, the Orchard Project, and New York University’s ITP/IMA Program.
