54 Bones (2018)

A gesturally based performance art for an audience of one with the Mi.Mu gloves (sensor-enabled gloves for performing music through movement and gesture).
Presented at Onca Gallery, Brighton Digital Festival for ‘Digital Gestures, Human Contact'.

54 Bones is a gesturally based performance art installation for an audience of one.
It uses gestural glove controllers to trigger and manipulate sounds, using a series of gestures and movements inspired by British Sign Language.
The work aims to extend the ephemeral moment at which sound, language and meaning collide, resulting
in a truly intimate, human experience for each person who takes part, leaving them free to interpret what the interaction means to them.

With Duncan Cabral, Olivia Louvel, Jamie Moore, Dominic Rae
