Ein Künstler*innenbild mit Felix.

Social Currents is a sensory system that seeks to make sense of human connections on a larger scale by displaying people’s digital twins and removing their agency. Over the span of hours, the installation attempts to build a social graph by detecting bodies and connecting them with each other.

Felix Renken is a video and visual artist based in Berlin. His work involves cyber-physical systems that interact with and manipulate environmental stimuli. Underlying concepts include digital representationalism, systems science, and the question of how complex patterns emerge from seemingly fundamental sets of rules.
