Collaboration of Chris Ziegler with Dancer Unita Gay Galiluyo and Composer Hugo Paquete.
Ovid's "Pygmalion" redefined and updated - a body in digital morphogenesis. A play about the morphogenesis of the body from flesh into dance as a mediated event.
Various digital, visual or sensory sonic and material interactions generate a multimedia body. The body appears in its secondary representation as a light phenomena, as image and generated sound actuator. corpus replaces the empathic body in the hierarchy of mediated perception to where it actually appears in most digital environments: as a trigger for visual and acoustic experiences.
The dancer is not perceived in full sight. It gives the full experience of a dance experience through its representation. It reflects the “real” experience of most members in the audience, where the sense of place is replaced by mediated participation.
