Motion Capture XR Performance
A six-month virtual creative residency program in 2022 - based at Goldsmiths, University of London, using the university-developed tool that streams live motion capture data over the internet, allowing users from multiple remote locations to interact in the same shared digital space.
We are water and memory is what the body carries,
Like information, like energy. Water is memory.
Responding to the insurmountable and collective grief, loss and th e heaviness of memory experienced during the afterlife of the pandemic, Water Nodes is a hybrid immersive installation /performance (live +remote) that reminisces cross-cultural, personal, maternal histories inherited/passed on in the body. By evoking family archive photographs, spiritual and mythological references, the performance considers in the quality of water a passage for memories to flow, contain and dissipate.
