A musical performance, featuring some new experiments with poetic robotics and telepresence. For Our Machines, an events series curated by Louise Colbourne.
The Observer Building 53 Cambridge Road , Hastings , East Sussex TN34 1DT, UK
I’ll be performing with theremin and automata and presenting a new work, Trace, in this celebration of artists and the machines they build. Trace is an excercise in poetic robotics and telepresence. Here, I’m capturing people’s gestures, breaths and other body movements and using them to animate their discarded, everyday objects. I’ll be performing with these new objects then inviting people to try them out.
Trace is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Thanks also to the Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, Bristol, and AIR Falmouth for their support.
From the curator, Louise Colbourne:
