Meditating I/Os is a live presentation of documentary material dramatised as a piece of experimental theatre/reading. Meursault – the protagonist of The Outsider (1942) – is lost in time and space. He de- and re- constructs his story, moving through a transcendent landscape of noise in order to piece together a narrative for himself and others, and make sense of the strange world that surrounds him on stage.
Staged using an eclectic combination of media with an emphasis on experiencing a story through sound, the play explores human-object relationships and the entanglement of things in a post-digital reality. Our revised protagonist is an avatar of his existence.
Text, Direction & Design: Erik Lintunen
Performer: Grace Strickland de Souza
Evening performance at 8pm will be broadcast live both on Resonance 104.4FM (FM central London, DAB Greater London + online at resonancefm.com) and Resonance Extra (DAB Brighton + online at extra.resonance.fm).

About the artist
Erik Lintunen is a young artist based in London, primarily interested in information experience, creating work in the contexts of digital and live arts.
He has recently presented a variety of collaborative work at Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, Resonance FM, Royal Academy of Arts, SPILL Festival of Performance, and some fringe venues across Europe. Beyond traditional performance making, he has been developing work at Barbican Pit Theatre, HOME Manchester, as well as online. Happiness for Erik is working in funky interdisciplinary scenarios devising work that he considers meaningful and relevant: anthropocentrism and ecology; algorithms, AI and data; disjunctions of meaning and noise; experimental interfaces for experiences; investigating the communications landscape with an emphasis on augmenting reality through physical computing; post-humanism and digital sociology; power dynamics within structures; systems and their environments.
