Tower of Babelfish

Apr 13, 2007We performed at Crossmediale 2, an international new media event, held at Chicago's Gosia Koscielak Studio and Gallery. Real world gallery visitors enjoyed a projected live online performance where Second Front enacted textual performances that communicated with spirits of four dead performers: Tristan Tzara, Ana Mendieta, Charlotte Moorman and Rudolf Schwarzkogler. The ghosts used AtlaVista’s Babelfish engine as a means of trans-dimensional communication.
