Capturing the dangers and benefits of human-machine interface, the artists invite physical and auditory interaction as a means of altering the dynamics of human-machine relationships. By limiting visual aspects of the piece, the artists intend to heighten sonic awareness to invoke emotional states. The piece uses a dialectic form of inquiry, playing on a modified Socratic method to embody concerns raised by increasing machine-human interaction.
