E.I The Blob is a noise making interactive “image-organism” sensitive to sound and touch, created to explore new ways of thinking (being, acting) with the Moving Image. With it we want to open up for human to non-human social relations, where situated forms of response-ability exisits, and where the digital and the organic systems are intertwined in a continual state of affecting and changing each other. E.I the Blob plays a central role in the artistic research project “Non-knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image” where it has allowed us to rethink our relation to the moving image and see it as an "intra-active" vibrant body. With E.I the Blob we want to shift our attention away from the moving image and the body as forms of representations, to them as matter and waves of psychic intensities and fields of individuation. E.I could stand for Earthificial Intelligence, or simply a mispronunciation or confusion of the acronyms A.I. or E.T.
