A Space of Our Own

November 2020

This is a short documentation of a virtual reality performance piece that was presented as part of the New Blood XIV Performance Festival at School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This was performed over a 2-hour duration, and used screens to provide a portal window into the virtual environment the performance was taking place in. The movements explore interaction with characters only seen in the virtual space. Over the course of the performance, the performer learns and integrates these digital movements into his own library to become manifested in this physical reality. This method allows the movements to become intuitive in nature and serve to represent the merge of extended reality technologies and the mechanics of the human body.
