CONSPIRACY – Archives
Embodied Prototyping for Somatic Archiving.
This installation is a Mixed Reality Choreographic Archive. The large images installed in this space act as triggers to launch video in an augmented reality app running on mobile devices (phones, iPads etc.) Conspiracy Archives is part of the Somatic Archiving strand of the Living Archives Research Project (2012-2018) at Malmö University, Sweden, initiated by professor Susan Kozel (Philosophy/ Archival Concept) in collaboration with Jeannette Ginslov (Digital Media & AR Creation and Concept) Keith Lim (AR/MR Creation and media development) and choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir.
In this artistic research project, the somatic qualities of the performance Conspiracy Ceremony-HYPERSONIC STATES (2017) by Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir are channeled and shared. This archive uses digital devices to transport something of human value and experience beyond the domain of the commercial world and consumer markets. It is an active political gesture.
Dancers: Johanna Chemnitz, Catherine Jodoin, Laura Siegmund, Marie Topp, Suet-Wan Tsang. Music: Peter Rehberg.
