Body Print

 Print Screen Festival Holon 2014

An interactive work combining video art, choreography and programming.

 

A glass wall stands in the middle of a dark room. The observer moves closer and sees himself reflected there as an anonymous figure. His body movements are scanned into the glass wall and then disappear. The wall shows encounters between other anonymous figures who previously stood in the same place. For a moment, the observer witnesses a dance-encounter between two figures who never met.

 

Through this installation, we hoped to raise questions regarding the lives of our memories inside the world wide “web”. What happens to our memories as they float through this infinite space? How do we pull them out? And what happens when one person’s memory meets another person's memory online? 


The interactive activity allowed audience members to “immerse” parts of their bodies into the virtual space and observe as their physical memories became part of a massive pool of memories.
