What do we desire as individuals, as collectives, as neighbors, as friends, as locals, as foreigners, as citizens?

Definitions Series: On Desire presents special performances by Di Mattison on “The Genealogy of Eros” and Joie Reinstain on future trends with “Gamification and Mixed Reality” on the occasion of the launch of the second volume of Odisseo. On Desire includes the presentation of EROS & NOUS, a site-specific installation curated by Odiseo, of two blank books installed in diametrically opposed ends of the gallery to collect the visitors erotic and intellectual desires.

“Love Will Tear Us Apart Again: The Genealogy of Eros” by Di Mattison

What is Eros and how can we think of it as an operative force in the world and in our lives? This speech examines a few historical and philosophical approaches to conceptualizing Eros and concludes with its psychoanalytic formulation as a primordial force that both binds and divides.

“Gamification & Mixed Reality: Our Preoccupation with the Online and Offline Experience” by Joie Reinstain

The world is entering an era where online moments are as important as offline moments. And as Millennias take over the workforce and Digital Natives come of age, we are seeing that our lives are more and more seamlessly integrated with digital experiences and gaming processes. This talk explores ideas such as our preoccupation with reality, how science fiction is coming true and that the world is becoming one giant game.
