azimat untuk algoritma


‘azimat untuk algoritma’, translated from Malay to mean “amulets for algorithms”, is a work based off an ongoing series of speculative fiction on imagined communities in Singapore. the work comprises of a set of amulets made for computers to “install” or allow for spirits to inhabit a machine at the interest of protecting it.


bani haykal experiments with text + music.

As an artist, composer and musician, bani considers music (making / processes) as material and his projects investigate modes of interfacing and interaction with feedback / feedforward mechanisms. He is a member of b-quartet.

Manifestations of his research culminate into works of various forms encompassing installation, poetry and performance. In his capacity as a collaborator and a soloist, bani has participated in festivals including MeCA Festival (Japan), Wiener Festwochen (Vienna), Media/Art Kitchen (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Japan), Liquid Architecture and Singapore International Festival of Arts (Singapore) among others.

His current work frames encryption as a process and basis for human-machine intimacy in both personal and public domains, by navigating interfaces such as a QWERTY keyboards and various autonomous machines as mediums of interactivity.
