Developed in partnership with Digital Music and Sound Arts course, Fab Lab (University of Brighton) and Mi.Mu, the two installations on display in Digital Gestures, Human Contact offer an inspiring, surprising and mesmerising journey through digital motion sensor technologies, music and visuals where the audiences become interchangeably performers and observers.
54 Bones is a gesturally based performance art installation for an audience of one. It uses gestural glove controllers to trigger and manipulate sounds, using a series of gestures and movements inspired by British Sign Language. The work aims to extend the ephemeral moment at which sound, language and meaning collide, resulting in a truly intimate, human experience for each person who takes part, leaving them free to interpret what the interaction means to them.
Cogflux.01 is an interactive audio-visual installation by PRTCL Collective aiming to break the barrier between audience and performer through the use of motion sensor technology, generative audio and visuals. The piece aims to conceptually adopt the headspace one obtains whilst traveling long distances, which was inspired by Kaihōgyō, a walking meditation process used by Buddhist monks for more than 1000 years.
