UVP Presents: Kite

What‘s on the earth is in the stars; and what’s in the stars is on the earth: special event with Kite

An experimental lecture

Thursday, April 21 at 6:30pm EST
Hosmer Auditorium at the Everson Museum of Art

To register for the event, follow these links:

Join multimedia artist and scholar Kite for an experimental lecture, What‘s on the earth is in the stars; and what’s in the stars is on the earth, which blends emerging technologies to explore the conflicting conventions of American settler-colonial identity and Lakota epistemologies.

In this hybrid remote and in-person experimental lecture, multimedia artist Kite will explore how artificial intelligence reproduces the logics of coloniality, flattening land, people, and lifeworlds into objects of knowledge — data points to be extracted. Kite intervenes on the conventions of colonialism embedded in emerging technologies by imagining what it would mean to instead build algorithms, code, and software according to the Lakota understanding of the Good Way transmitted by her family members that consider the good of Seven Generations into the future.

In conjunction with the event, the two exhibitions featuring Kite’s work will be on view. In the Everson’s Malzman Gallery, the interactive video piece Fever Dreams will be on view. On the Everson plaza, Makȟóčheowápi Akézaptaŋ (Fifteen Maps), which was commissioned by Light Work for UVP, will be on view as an architectural projection on the north facade.

Following the in-person lecture, join UVP for refreshments and view her new video work Makȟóčheowápi Akézaptaŋ (Fifteen Maps) on the Everson facade.

Fever Dream at the Everson Museum of Art

April 21 - August 7, 2022

Kite and Devin Ronneberg will be presenting their interactive multimedia exhibition Fever Dream (2021) at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York. 

Fever Dream is an interactive multimedia installation by Kite, an Oglala Lakota performance artist, visual artist, and composer, and Devin Ronneberg, a multidisciplinary artist of Kanaka Maoli/Okinawan descent working primarily in sculpture, sound, image-making, and computational media. The work brings together their mutual interests in the implications of emergent technologies and artificial intelligence, information control and collection, Indigenous ontologies, and bodily interfaces. In response to the audience’s proximity in the gallery, a large projection flips between channels algorithmically tuned in to scraped footage of conspiracy theories, paranormal and extraterrestrial sightings, and recent news broadcasts. The work plumbs the depths of the settler-colonial psyche and the ways in which settler conspiracies are often founded on a denial of Indigenous agency, such as the belief that “ancient aliens” are responsible for the building of Indigenous earthworks and monuments.

For more information on this exhibition, please visit the Everson Museum of Art website here.
