Now open in the West Space Window: 'looking out over the board // you can see reflections of algae' by Red Slyme Incubator
Red Slyme Incubator (RSI) looks to develop their ongoing incubation of collaborative non-human interactions and invocations. For ‘looking out over the board // you can see reflections of algae’, RSI look to the honoured, abstract antagonism of chess. Inspired by chess engines – in particular the open-source engine 'Stockfish' – and the interaction between human and non-human in competitive play, RSI find processes of becoming through the shrine-like interactions of jewellery, chess pieces, and a red and green chessboard. This moment of inception is fuelled by the image of Red tide (the discolouring of coastal waters with algae bloom), a rupture within the apparent harmony of nature.
Red Slyme Incubator (RSI) is a collaborative practice between Hannah Hallam-Eames, Samuel Jackson, and Red Algae. RSI utilises strategies of making and installation practice that develops the character of RSI as a single but non-discrete entity.
'looking out over the board // you can see reflections of algae' is supported by The City of Yarra through their Annual Arts Grants.
