a radical mix of Art and Science in new BodyQuake performance
BodyQuake is the visualization and sonorization of the scientic, cultural, emotional, technological, psychological, paradoxical body disrupted by the earthquake of the epileptic seizure. All of these aspects of the body come together in this live media performance: data, visuals, sounds, presence, story arcs become one - polyphonically - to create a composite, sincretic experience, bringing together current radical scientic and technological innovation.
A choreography involving the body of a performer who "wears" the data from epileptic seizures and for the bodies of the audience, who wear a device which lets them experience the BodyQuake, the telluric vibration of the seizure. BodyQuake deals with epilepsy: it brings together current radical scientific and technological innovation on the condition with its particular social and psychological status.
All of these aspects of the body come together in the performance: data, visuals, sounds, presence, story arcs become one - polyphonically - to create a composite, sincretic experience.
A Concert for BODIES + DATA. BodyQuake is the result of the collaboration between IRCCS Neuromed, Fondazione Neuromed and La Cura, together with: Art is Open Source (Salvatore Iaconesi and Oriana Persico); artist and performer Francesca Fini; Flyer Communication; the international community “FLxER Live Media” and the AVNode project.
