Description

How do we perform ourselves in digital space? In Not Not 0.1, Catherine Siller uses her own custom software and a motion capture camera to generate projected text and images of herself. She immerses herself in these projections and dances between the virtual and the real in a duet with her digital double. The piece destabilizes language and gesture as it repeatedly redraws the boundary between the physical and the digital self.
