ME & MY DEVICE
THE EVOLUTION OF INTIMACY WITH TECHNOLOGY
"Me and My Device" is an interactive performance exploring the possibility of a musically augmented body. By merging a fleshy and greasy human with a wet and conductive digital interface, man is suddenly able to produce new sounds with its body. This new sense is not a practical one but rather for pure enjoyment of expressing oneself.
This piece aims to start a conversation on the evolution of our intimacy with technology. The performer is transformed into a living device that the audience can touch and use to create sound. The garment worn by the performer is soaked with gel and water, a new experience of touch that triggers sound at every interaction.
