video excerpt with performer Yuko Yamada, in collaboration with programmer Ivan Chabanaud and composer Roland Cahen
As technologies develop, the individual senses a growing agency, an increasing power over the world. But as the human interlocutor is replaced by technology, the exerting power becomes displaced and intangible. As the power of the individual in virtual space increases, the power of the body in physical space is reduced by a strategic partitioning of time, space and movement.
The western metaphor of light as objectivity and truth posits light/sight as right and good; darkness as bad. The images that surround us often promulgate this idea. Para_site investigates these notions – power, discipline, and the docile body.
