Excursion Into Mixed Reality
Every day we interact with the digital world of computers and electronic media. We may consider this realm to be distinct from our experience
in the physical world. Excursion Into Mixed Reality explores the permeable boundary between these ‘realities’ by harnessing physical motion to create meaningful digital representations.
The dancer becomes the musical performer of a meta-instrument that extends bodily gestures into the realms of sound and video. Through a form of play, the dancer navigates the constantly shifting and parameterized digital environments that comprise the work. By linking different forms of media, the piece reveals underlying gestural similarities between motion,
imagery and sound.
