"Fragment 3" is the third fragment in a process-based series that choreographer Ashley Ferro-Murray has been working on since Fall 2008.
Exploring the space between digital spectrality and digital saturation, this piece moves through various networks as it leads an audience through various iterations of digital choreographies. Wireless accelerometers used throughout the choreographic process inspire the conceptual context of this piece. These sensors are deleted are not worn in performance to explore the body in movement as it exhibits a digital tone in the absence of digital technology. In contrast to the spectral presence of the sensors, the performance space itself is saturated with digital interface. A live video feed of the real-time performance will be input into French digital installation artist Maurice Benayoun’s online network for artistic collaboration, The Art Collider (TAC)
. Simultaneously, Ferro-Murray projects real-time images from other artists using TAC.
In association with BCNM (Berkeley Center for New Media).
Please find instructions for easy ways to connect to TAC via the Connect and Participate site
. I would recommend "Live Camera" if you want to input live video, or "Flowmixer" to input prerecorded and/or mixed material. Then, you can simultaneously connect to other footage from the system by opening up links from other live projects. TAC is a fairly new project that is still in the final development stages, but the system seems to be working quite well. I will project a sampling of any material in the network throughout my performance.
Also, if you are in the area this event is free and open to the public. You'll find us in Banatao Auditorium in Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley.
