The Everted Capital 1971-4936
Fabien Giraud & Raphaël Siboni
Fabien Giraud & Raphaël Siboni’s 24 hours long filmed-performance starts on august 15th 1971 in the Uchisange Elementary school in Okayama, Japan. As the earth is being dismantled by the acceleration of its rotation, a group of mortals have taken a family of immortals as hostages and are ready to die with the earth. As a tv crew enters the building to check on the hostages and interview the mortals, an infant is born. The events recorded during the performance take place 3000 years later, as the earth dismantling is near completion.
The film follows the life of the last mortal - 82nd generations later - as she incessantly repeats the original scene from august 1971. As in the initial scene, a child is born. But this child is not a regular child. She is the product of a cross-breeding between mortals and immortals. Neither mortal nor immortal, she is More Than Life.
Using deep fake technology to transform objects and spaces in the mutating newborn infant, the film is generated in real time and changes shape at every iteration.
