2017 - 2020 Anakin Xersonsky

Skaska: a Hopeful Monster

What can a displaced being say about contamination?

A videogame, set in the outskirts of Kyiv, Anakin's hometown. “Skaska” means “fairytale” in Russian. “A Hopeful Monster” is the title of a study in which Ola Svensson, Alan Smith, Javier Garcia-Alonso and Cock van Oosterhout watch an intersex cichlid fish selfing in a UK university lab. “Selfing” means reproducing without a sexual mate. The videogame does not show reproduction, but a shapeshifting reality in which every encounter changes both bodies. 

To be continued.

Anakin Xersonsky's AEROPONIC ACT Skaska: a Hopeful Monster will be live-streamed from Radio Kootwijk on August 26th at 1.20am

Afterwards Flavia Dzodan, Amit S. Rai, and Amal Alhaag will respond to the question What can a displaced being say about contamination?
