digital 1.5

The digital 1.5 project is a series of five staging events that explore touch. Each event is an independent attempt to haptically read the world with a digital understanding of the physicality and the practice of mutual closeness and the coexistence of objects to which viewers are invited. The selected group of bodies establishes contact with other bodies in space – with the bodies of performers, the body of space, the sonic body, and the bodies of technological objects. The latter is an increasingly important interface for our entry into the world. By using them, the digital 1.5 questions the mediatization of closeness and intimacy, and by applying the solid digital logic of devices and their software to the soft organic bodies of people, it speculates about man, who is not only a source of information, but also a device for processing and storing data.

The touch in the digital 1.5 is a way of communicating and a means of encountering the other; it is a digitized data and a transmission medium at the same time. The project builds on the idea of ​​the medium as given by Y. Citton in his book The Ecology of Attention. The author describes the media as diffuse ecosystems that not only represent reality, but they actively form it. Thus, an ‘infrastructure of resonances that condition our attention’ is formed according to the ideas that ‘surround and fulfil us’. In this respect, thedigital 1.5 is not in search of a loud staging gesture, but it wants to provide a space of visibility or, in Citton's language, an environment of reasoning for increasingly marginalized and, at the time of the pandemic, transgressive practices of mutual closeness and touching.
