Mosaic Silicon Valley, a project of Sangam Arts, presents and evening of performances inspired by New Terrains, a series of cross-disciplinary exhibitions and programs across the South Bay that explore how bodies move through social and political spaces. Highlights include a live segment of the mobile broadcast, AUTOPILOTO by international arts collective RadioEE.net, presented by the Lucas Artists Program at Montalvo Arts Center.
Broadcast from a semi-autonomous vehicle traveling around the Bay Area, on November 15 and 16, AUTOPILOTO will investigate the challenges and opportunities of emerging autonomous mobilities through live soundscapes, music, and Spanish-English-Vietnamese conversations with drivers, designers, technologists, municipal agents, researchers, artists, and scientists, opening a channel for music, storytelling, and sonic experiments.
From 8-9pm RadioEE will be inviting the public to add their voices to the ongoing debate about all things self-driving.
Through “New Terrains: Mobility and Migration,” South Bay arts organizations band together to present a series of cross-disciplinary exhibitions, programs and experiences that explore how bodies move through spaces—social, political, literal, and figurative. Projects address timely topics such as transportation and urban planning, navigation and orientation, public protest, immigration and migration, and mobility in its many forms.
