“imagination augments the values of reality.” – Gaston Bachelard “The Poetics of Space”
“Moonshot: solos for your home” places a more than human identity in the home of the user. By imagining a pre-recorded/motion-captured solo made alive in the user’s space I am exploring audience as performer and archive as a performance. The audience member becomes the performer by engaging with an Augmented Reality (AR) entity in the space through watching from a distance, moving around 360*, or sitting immersed in the body of the performer. The choreography and movement of the dancer was archived through motion-captured choreography of dancer and performer. By placing this danced archive in the hands of the user, I am questioning the essence of performance and exploring alternative performance venues.
