2KXX is a research collaboration with filmmaker and design researcher Emilia Tapprest (nvisible.studio). Since 2017 Tapprest and Newmen explore ‘alternative realities’ through improvisational interventions taking the shape of performance and video. This first iteration emerged from a summer residency in Torino in 2018 at Casa Jasmina. Casa Jasmina is a project in the business space of domestic electronic networking, or, ‘the Internet of Things in the Home.’ During 7-days Tapprest and Newmen sensitized to the affective atmosphere of Casa Jasmina and further extrapolated subjective experiences arising in a sentient home environment.
