On the occasion of Refik Anadol’s Latent Being exhibition at Kraftwerk Berlin, Amnesia Scanner presented ANESTHESIA SCAMMER, a new work commissioned by LAS that consisted of three acts incorporating narrative, music, video, animatronics and AI (Artificial Intelligence) poetry. The duo previously worked and performed with Oracle, the ghost summoned from the Amnesia Scanner machine. Oracle, this time was embodied in the form of an animatronic sculpture, became the lead protagonist. ANESTHESIA SCAMMER is a spiritual sequel to the artists’ audio play Angels Rig Hook exploring millenarian anxieties and digital deities.
