CROSSLUCID is an artist collective, co-founded by Sylwana Zybura and Tomas C. Toth in Shanghai in 2018, which engages in collaborative cross-disciplinary projects in co-evolution with technology. They create experience-driven interventions and novel formats through filmmaking, poetic Artificial Intelligence, and the multi-layered techniques of collage and assemblage. Advancing metamodern values, they instigate prototyping and rehearsing potential futures to create alternative epistemologies and outlooks on (the so-called) reality while aiming to present a challenge to dominant narratives of technology under the conditions of informatic capitalism. Their research converges around exploring the self as a network, intimacy, and the potential for pleasurable actualisation through the digital sphere, and the re-imagination of our alliances with technology seen as part of a sympoietic biosphere and universal post-material consciousness. Currently, they are working on their first full-length sci-fi documentary TRANSLUCID in co-creation with machine intelligence.
