Sapient_2.021 Film Premiere

Sapient 2.021 is an experimental short film by artist Amenda Tate exploring what it means to be human in a tech-saturated world. This work is part collaborative documentary and part screen dance. It draws inspiration from science fiction combining Tate’s motion-controlled painting robot with dance and visual art to examine ideas surrounding labor, control, empathy, and human rights in the wake of 2020. The work commemorates the 100th anniversary of the word “robot” introduced to the English language through the play R.U.R (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Capek. This project is supported by the Iowa Arts Council a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts. --- PRE-SHOW at 8pm SCREENING following sunset around 9pm followed by Q&A to end by 10pm Bring your own chairs or blankets for seating Masks highly encouraged --- This event is part of Art Week Des Moines.
