HANAGATA Shin / FURUTA Katsumi / KAKEHI Yasuaki [Japan]


An interactive piece involving parasitization of one person’s arm by another to effect bodily overlap. As a HMD-fitted participant (parasite) views video imagery from the perspective of the fingertips of the performer (parasitized), their head movements are converted and synchronized with the performer’s finger and arm movements in real time to achieve remote interaction in conjunction with speaker-delivered voices.
