DasArts Master Proof: Human Simulation

Master Proof Project by Orion Maxted (DasArts - Master of Theatre).

What connects the transcription of protein P53 to the policies of Angela Merkel? What connects the collapse of Jim and Sam’s relationship to the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership? Or time to money? Human Simulation is an algorithmic performance, based on systems biology, that applies biology-like processes to language to create a bizarre non-linear world, interweaving vastly different scales - from the auto-regulation of the human cell to the drama of love and loss, and the causalities of international politics.

This all-too-human simulation of systems biology produces new forms of thinking and performance, whilst simultaneously suggesting that metaphor – the ability to interpret difference and connection as information – is fundamental to life.
