|Performing in InterPlay: Dancing on the Banks of Packet Creek
Image Description for Sign The Sound:
Dancing on the Banks of Packet Creek was an exploration into the tenuous devotion that we have towards the inundating wave of digital information and non-experiential knowledge. Packet Creek depicts the Internet with its flow of disassembled pieces of data that course throughout the world like schools of spawning salmon. Dancing on the Banks is the expressive ritualistic gyrations as we create, disseminate, search, and acquire this electronic epistemological knowledge.
Using the metaphor of fluid motion and dynamics we portrayed the immense amount of this non-experiential knowledge and the influence that it has on us. The expansive range between truth and fiction or frivolity and importance are just some creative investigations and artistic expressions that are explored through music, dance, video, computer graphics and remote motion capture MIDI control.
