Scan, Touch, and Interact: Redefining the Human Body

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Trenda's performances and installations explore the relationship of the human body, particularly the female body, to technology. She interchanges her identity and her physical body with screens to represent how we conceal and reveal ourselves through our devices (smart phones, computers, etc.). The performance is created using screens and imaging technologies that conceptually focus on the digital environment and how it affects our social behaviors. As technological devices become an integral part of our daily lives, we relate to them as if they are part of our skin and part of our identities. This will change how we see others and ourselves with the integration of the human body with new technology. The meaning of scan, touch, and interact have completely transformed. What was once describing human to human contact, is now defining human to machine interaction. We are curating our lives by revealing and concealing ourselves through the materialization of screens. How does this change our behaviors? Does this effect the ideological perspective of the female body? Today, our technology-obsessed culture are constantly changing, shifting, and redefining the human body.
