Final Thoughts

As we approach the final performance, I shall reflect on the conference that happened last week. It was nice to hear an outsider’s perspective regarding our Touch performance and their interactions with Prof Randall, Prof Galine and Angelina. I thought it was nice to have each of us talk about the concepts Read more →

I think your realization is very true. It is in the process of exploration that you discover the meaning of ideas, such as in this case, the idea of touch in the virtual embrace. The importance of process is something I try to encourage in my OSS classes: the experience of developing a work is just as important as the final result. I think you fully understand and have embraced that idea and I hope it is an idea you can use in your other classes and your work as an artist.

I finally managed to obtain the pictures of me making my costume so I will feature them in this post alongside some of the images from our rehearsal and my thoughts on it.

This is an excellent, detailed account of the whole process of the construction of your costume/wearable to its use in the dance rehearsal. It is illuminating to see how the behind the scenes work is done to create a techno-costume and then see how it is used for live performance. Also, very interesting analysis of your impression of the telematic space and how you felt the spaces merging together through networked media.

Very interesting to see you exploring spontaneous movement. I think that's an excellent idea and relates back to when Angeline had everyone analyzing their dreams. The costume is superb and your documentation is detailed extremely well. You have done excellent work and I look forward to see the wearables integrated in our final session on Thursday.

My choice of 5 different lights, namely: Red, Blue, Orange, Purple and Yellow was inspired from the colours of a jellyfish.

Beautiful work. Your documentation of process is wonderfully detailed with excellent photography. I think these photos are like artworks themselves! You have commented on the dress construction, music, and performance and I am interested to know how you feel all of these elements are integrating together in your work. This is something you can address in the Project Hyperessay: Conclusion.
