Description

Glitching - Artist's presentation organised by Artlink Central, StirlingAbrupt Encounters Group (http://www.abruptencounters.com/)The Changing Room Gallery, Stirling11 Dec 2012. My presentation was about 'glitching' a digital installation and performance project that attempts to re-describe the movement derived from characters in contemporary sports and action computer games. Using the premise of home entertainment dance and training games. It employs the motion-sensor controller, Microsoft Kinect, and large-screen display to create a digital installation for the public to interact with. The exhibition visitor is invited to step into the digital shoes of the 'lead dancer', and attempt to follow the awkward and intricate, glitch choreography performed by the dancing troupe on screen. Alongside the interactive installation there are a series of 'glitching' live performances featuring the digital installation, dancers Tony Mills, Hannah Seignior, Felicity Beveridge and a performance soundtrack devised by Martin Parker.
