The Laser Unicorns are a collective of artists, practitioners, technologists, researchers and commentators, who come together to cultivate connections and to nurture creative cooperation. Through their affinity for all things performative and technological, they come together to capture, share, discuss, experiment, and develop work and ideas relating to performance and digital art.
Through creative exploration, their aim is to consider how to negotiate the complex nexus of performance and digital art. How can we activate collective thinking and artistic work and practices that deal with the complicated relation between embodied matter and the digital? How might we interrogate further, the range of inter/transdisciplinary approaches specifically from the perspective of artistic process and practice? How can we capture, share, and elucidate these processes and modes of thinking?
