KROY: ANIMACHINA - animisme et némésis

In January of 2022, KROY debuted her latest work ANIMACHINA - animisme et némesis, seven performance art videos presented at the PHI Centre. Created during a series of workshops conducted under the supervision of Jonathon Anderson at Ryerson University’s Creative School, KROY enters into a symbiosis with the robots surrounding her.

In lieu of a performance presented to the public, KROY hopped onto the KUKA robot’s arm to perform her single “RYAN ATWOOD” in a stripped down, melancholic version of the hyper-infused pop form it takes on streaming services.

"ANIMACHINA, as a whole, is meant to be consumed as an intruder walking into a new human/robot relationship. I was greatly inspired by PHI's Nuit Infrarouge at the beginning of 2021. Filming this video series of performances as I imagined them reminded me of the creative process that the viewer had access to while working on night demos at the PHI Studio. This stream is a way for me to combine these two experiences that significantly impacted my creative process during the pandemic. Giving access to an ongoing process, I want to allow myself to share my work in a continually morphing state."
