In this artist talk, Keiken speak about their origins; how they started and how they work together both as a collective as well as with a network of collaborators. The talk focuses on how their collaboration evolved over time and the different roles they play within the collective in relation to the development of their work. The talk uses their current ongoing worldbuilding project Morphogenic Angels, closely looking at Chapter 1 of the Morphogenic Angels game as a way to expand on their methodologies and practice. Screening parts of the game for reference, Keiken talk through the work’s development alongside the key concepts and ideas behind it.
Keiken is an artist collective co-founded in 2015 by Tanya Cruz, Hana Omori and Isabel Ramos, based between London and Berlin. Keiken (the Japanese word for ‘experience’) create speculative worlds through filmmaking, gaming, installation, Extended Reality (XR), blockchain and performance, exploring the nature of consciousness, test-driving possible futures and unpacking how societal introjection governs the way we feel, think and perceive.Keiken are a winner of the inaugural Chanel Next Prize and are residents at Somerset House, London.
