About the project

Tensor Edge Recon takes place in the fallout of a yet unexplained event in which a renegade AI has liberated the processes of cultural production, enabling them to manipulate physical matter, and then disappeared. In its wake, only mysterious artefacts remain – strange fusions of various cultural elements, scattered in multiple seemingly random areas. The player takes on the role of a researcher who ventures into these hot zones of autonomous cultural production in an all-terrain vehicle and, with the help of a specialised interface, scavenges and documents individual artefacts in a futile attempt at understanding the emergent processes that produced them.

About the artist

In his artistic practice, Matej Mihevc explores the impact of new technologies on cultural production in a variety of ways. Recently, his main focus has been on different 3D modelling and animation software, although he is also interested in industrial processes and artificial materials, as well as machine learning and artificial intelligence. He is completing his postgraduate studies in Video and New Media at the Academy of Fine Art and Design (ALUO) of the University of Ljubljana. He has presented his work in several solo exhibitions: Deconstructed Club (2023, MoTA Lab), Polymer Ooze (2022, Dobra Vaga, in collaboration with Vid Koprivšek), @flat_gaze (2021, osmo/za), Cambrian Interfaces (2021, Media Nox, in collaboration with Farah Sara Kurnik). In the past, he has participated in several design projects, and for the last seven years, he has hosted the Modem radio show on Radio Študent, where he explores underground internet music.
