Product Description

Psyche ROM is a radioplay losely based on the poem “Ultraviolet“, which was written in 2020 as part of the process of the installation “Oh that I could“. The text imagines a secular reflection of an intelligent device working in mining on 16Psyche and living in an ATP* unit orbiting the asteroid.
The character maintains a mythical, nostalgic memory culture of the Anthropocene as a spiritual origin. The play acousticly revolves around the question of whether artificial intelligence would reach a point that, triggered by phenomena inexplicable to the machine, would give rise to the need to define theistic concepts.

The recorded sounds are a sonic fiction that represents a collection of the device's memories and unconscious. The record addresses the question of whether the subjective aesthetic experience has the potential to be stored or remembered in an auditory way.
