Keiken are artists, art directors and musicians working collaboratively in a networked practice that merges multiple voices and mediums with collective critical thinking to create immersive experiences. Working with interactive contemporary art and the latest technologies, they apply world-building techniques to imagine networked, layered futures in order to test-drive implications. Most recently, Keiken presented their performative lecture “Honey, I’m Data!” at IMPAKT Festival (Utrecht) developed from previous iterations at LUX Moving Image and Space Art + Technology (London). They have also exhibited and curated at CTM and Transmediale’s Vorspiel festival (Berlin), MIRA Festival (Barcelona) and U Studio at Tate (St Ives). They were the first artists to have their virtual reality film projected 22,000 light years into space by Jon Pettigrew for Planet3artnews.
