PROGRAM INFORMATION

Iteration X: Extending the Body
 

Creator/Performer: Tara Lee Burns

This "cyborg performance" investigates digital, imagined, and physical paint as simultaneous and asynchronous through multiple mediums and platforms. Whether viewing the live solo in person or streamed, a recorded visual trace of an improvisation, or watching a body experience it's first moments in a cultivated virtual environment, the performance is  about the layered perspective of choice and access inherent in our daily lives.

"The image of a body wearing a VR headset evokes science-fiction, cyborg, and other. However, by extending the edges of my flesh through virtual painting, I intersect my identity as a human, mother, and dancer to my external image of cyborg where identity meets lived experience.”

“By repurposing old making techniques for virtual spaces, specifically Google's Tilt Brush, I aim to build a series of short interchangeable works in a range of disciplines and further imagine the possibilities of non-traditional venues."
