A real encounter between two sensing bodies / work by Deutinger/Navaridas/Riegler
In MOTORA, Marta Navaridas interacts with a Volvo V60 in an attempt towards a real encounter between two sensing bodies - one organic and one non-organic. Overshadowed by the awareness of her own fragility and the presence of potential death lurking around such a relationship, she explores her affects towards the machine and enacts a poetic ritual of fatalism, meandering between erotic seduction, wishful thinking, pragmatic realism, and tender anthropomorphization.
