    In[bodi]mental: Body Swapping - A Choreography of Shared Selves using Real-time Video

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2014)

    London, UK, 8 - 10 July 2014


    Lorna Moore


    This practice-led research will present a video document of the live video performance In[bodi]mental performed at The Public in West Bromwich 2011. The presentation articulates what happens to our perception of self when we move across the boundary between the corporeal self and the live digital image as other. In[bodi]mental draws the performer/participant through the video frame were both participant are immersed in each other. Both performers are suspended in the belief that the live digital image of the other performer is a part of their own corporeality. The work involves two participants wearing a Head Mounted Display System linked to a live video feed. Each performers live video feed is swapped over via a real-time video programme so each participant sees through the eyes of the other performer.
