 2017 is the inaugural year of FSM, the nomadic iteration of KochiAIR, an artist residency established by Lichen Kelp and Dylan Martorell in Kerala, India in 2014.  In June of this year FSM will travel with artists Belle Bassin, Nathan Gray, Dylan Martorell, Lichen Kelp, and Michael Candy, dancer Benjamin Hancock and writer, curator and publisher, Helen Hughes.  They will be based in Athens, Kithera and Serifos where over a period of six weeks these diverse practitioners will engage collaboratively with the public and each other creating improvised communities and radical experimentation.  These artists and musicians will use streets, airwaves, gallery and digital media to create a common noosphere of sensory activity incorporating robotics, interactive electronics, public lectures, wearable art, kinetic sculpture, performative chemistry and workshops.
