An Emological Symphony

2013


Monika Dorniak – Emological Symphony (2013), Sophiensaele, 2013, Photographer: Arne Schmitt


Dance performance
Wearable sculpture

Duration: 30-40 min.

Premiered at Sophiensaele, 100Grad Festival (2013)

Previously performed/exhibited at:
︎CTM Hacklab (Beta-phase) (2013)

The performative installation Emological Symphony is joining human and technological organs. The hybrid outcome is a bio-musical score, that is coming to life on stage. The performers heart rate, breathing scale, and temperature are being measured through sensors; the data is the parameter for the sound track. The performer is influencing the music, and being influenced by it - an interplay between actor and reactor. The work regards topics such as (over-) usage of technology, politics of privacy in the internet, and the changes of culture in the post-digital.
