WHY THE BODY / WHY MY BODY
2018


WHY THE BODY / WHY MY BODY USES A HEARTRATE SENSOR TO CONTROL THE PULSE OF LITERAL DANCE MUSIC AND A FLASHING LIGHT. THIS MAKES THE PERFORMER’S PHYSICAL PRESENCE ESSENTIAL BUT ALSO INTERCHANGEABLE. ONE AIM OF THIS IS TO RECONFIGURE THE COMMON FORMAT OF DANCE MUSIC WHERE PEOPLE STARE AT THE DJ INSTEAD OF DANCING WITH EACH OTHER. THE IDEAL PERFORMANCE ERUPTS FROM WITHIN A STANDING (DANCING) AUDIENCE IN A DARK SPACE.
