> DESCRIPTION

Mixed Reality Performance of Technesexual, part of Mixed Relations, by b.a.n.g. lab researchers Elle Mehrmand and Micha Cárdenas.

The performance consisted of the performers engaging in playful erotic acts in physical and virtual space, while using handmade electronic stethoscopes to play the sound of their heartbeats in both spaces, blurring the lines between the two. It was part of the Trasnocheo performance space curated by Susana Cook as part of the Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics 7th Encuentro at Mapa Teatro in Bogota, Colombia. The stethoscopes consisted of analog stethoscopes connected to piezo sensors wired to 1/8″ audio jacks.
