Real Real #4, Flora for Flora
Live streaming on social media platforms has become a highly contested public space. Legislators are scrambling to regulate what has become a medium weaponised by extremists, activated by community uprisings and utilised by corporate influencers.
Real Real explores the limits of this space as a platform for live performance. Social media live streaming has not only changed who can broadcast, but also what it means to be a witness to a live event. Real Real asks how is technology influencing live world experiences?
Real Real #4 will see the collaboration of three of Australian’s most influential young artists, Enoch Mailangi, Amrita Hepi and Future Method Studio (Genevieve Murray and Joel Sherwood-Spring) performed by Joseph Althouse and Gussy. Titled Flora 4 Flora, Real Real #4 is a Grindr hookup between a native wattle and an introduced rose.
