Rocio sent in with her “Exquisite Box” project, watch the videos to get an idea of what’s going on, but it’s pretty neat… people are recorded (and directed in box) and once it’s all played and shown with the other participants it makes an interesting video. With all six boxes going it’s intense…. She writes…
Last year working with physical computing and interactivity, most of my projects explored the relationship between the live body of the user as a performer and its digital representation in a narrative context. I developed an installation in which the user performs a very prescribed framework and his actions are automatically digitized to form part of a narrative of which the user is unaware. My objective is to find a middle point between the reproducible actions (those that can be photographed or shot -that is, the representation of the body) and the ones that are live and unique and which create an interdependent non-linear live narrative installation.
