Using multiple camera, multi projector video feedback and puppetry, 're:self' is live art which re:questions the self through refracted, rerouted, mandala like imagery.
If "->" is seen as insertion, as input, as a black box function... And "re:" is seen as an optional prefix, implying redo/relook/recursion...etc... Then... This is a show regarding self->re:composition and self->re:representation. (Pause)
Contained between the self->re:fractured and the self->produced, this solo persona spirals around re:representations by a prosthetic self->puppet and video feedback. Finding fractal self similarity in the representation of the representation.
This can be seen, in no particular order, as:
0) A non-dualistic ritual, merging the self with the camera, self with the puppet, self with Shamanic music, self with the projected image : to produce the re:combined self.
1) Attentively re:routing and letting go to allow self->organisation out of the structured chaos of multiple cameras, projectors and selves.
2) A complex re:com:position, onto, into, through each other, for the Other: a mash up a self->made mash up a mash up of the self
What is real? What is re:reproduced?
