Digital Incarnate: The Body, Identity and Interactive Media
As contemporary dance and media art advance into the 21st century, the divide between the real and virtual is evolving at a rapid pace. Whether through motion capture, live processing, animation or other means of data visualization, dance and media artists are using technology to explore the body in dynamic reflection and interaction with its digitized other. In the wake and crest of such advances, notions of identity dissolve and emerge in algorithmic and projected forms. Digital Incarnate explores the moving body in relation to technology in a multimedia exhibition featuring pioneering new media works by Luftwerk, The OpenEnded Group, and Troika Ranch, as well as the Synchronous Objects interactive web kiosk created by William Forsythe, Norah Zuniga Shaw, and Maria Palazzi.
