‘Perils of Obedience’ Performance in two acts

Obedience to authority: human capacity for cruelty. If an authority allows us to break the law and even across the boundary of our morality, we feel a propensity to do so, as attempted to shown by the psychologist Stanley Milgram in 1963.

Perils of Obedience was an interactive dance piece that first took place at the “Fête de la musique 2009” in Paris, France. It is a generative audio and dance re-enactment of the Milgram Experiment.

Basically, the show is a dance exploration of institutional and cultural power systems, where an audience member gets to have direct influence on a performers actions. It asks the questions, how far would an audience member go, given the power?

Volumetrically light project with arduino

Volumetrically light is an installation that uses the light as a tool to draw volumes into the space. Installed in a closed room where spectators can enter and directly interact with it with a series of sensors. All the process is completely automated and there is no “master” needed to operate the installations.

Sensors and logics can be changed and adapted to the final space, so we can sense various parameters directly related to the audience as movement, temperature, light and sound.

The spectator observes how volumes change together with the sound and the ambient light trough the volume of the space. Continue Reading →
