We Are Nowhere
Master of Music
Acknowledging technology’s impact on the ease and precision with which we capture moments of our daily lives, We Are Nowhere engages questions of memory and identity and investigates what is lost and gained through the streamlined manner in which we are able to create synthetic memories. To foster an environment for fluid exploration of these ideas, the piece employs interactive elements such as motion tracking and gesture recognition of the dancer, and digitally interfaced technology of the past—including 8mm film projectors and analog typewriters. All of these interactive elements inform and control the manner in which the music and film is realized.
