PROTOBODY 1.0


Brisa MP develops international residency HANGAR from June to July with the support of “Ventanilla abierta” FONDART (National Fund for Culture and Arts, from the ChileanGovernment.The residence offers two parallel lines of research; theoretical and practical.

The theorical residence it is to continue the C + T MAP project, where she has mapped dance and technology artists and works in Latin America. This time she records the Catalan and Spanish artists working process.

At the practical phase, the project is researching and developing an autonomous reagent device for dialogue with the human body and produce specific gesture, recognizing the possible ranges of motion in the human-machine interaction. Explores new methodologies in the field of BT (BodyTechnology) production, from the combination of technical, scientific and artistic languages.
In this context is to decipher the procedures of creation in BT that allow problematize the traditional structures of production stage work, where, as matter-body-art technology contaminate each other in the process of creating and learning; and expose the artistic research processes as exercises work.
Thus, PROTOBODY 1.0 continues her previous projects, carrying out research on human- device, focused on the moving body relationship, the modulation of body from technological devices, resulting interaction generate specific gestuality organized by the crossing of organic and artificial actuators.
This project is part of thesis from Master Technology and Aesthetics of Electronic Arts, she developed at the Tres de Febrero National University (Buenos Aires, Argentina).
