Searching for Euclid

Invited by Francisca Morand (dancer) and Javier Jaimovich (sound artist) to collaborate in their Emovere project residency, I worked in team with Cristián Canto to create an interactive piece aiming to explore the body-machine relation in an experimental dance and sound context. Invoking the old tradition of Euclid’s algorithm as an actual actor in the history of culture and technology, I developed a software which, by using the data provided by Javier after reading and parsing Francisca’s movements through sensors, brought onto a semi translucent canvas a visual (and somehow autonomous) configuration of the aforementioned actor. That last aspect, the visual configuration, was particularly developed by Cristián after studying key references of computer art and experimental machinic performances.
