In my practice I am translating real-time data into non-linear narratives and choreographies. My work intersects Internet art, performance, and installations. I take inspiration from user behavior on Social Media, from Internet protocols, or even from the very architecture and layout of the Web - the HTML-language - itself. I like to experiment with the conventional understanding of these topics and re-enact Internet-phenomena in "real life" while, the other way around, I transfer physical manifestations of networks into the online world. In many of my works I have used "code" as choreography for movement. In other works I, myself, have become an anthropomorphized Internet... My work encompasses theatrical manifestations of online data in "real space" and vice versa, performative algorithms deriving from physical data, such as weather reports, are utilized to choreograph scenarios online. In my talk I like to touch upon my work of the last two "Internet decades", and then focus on my latest works which include on the one hand large scale real-time data-driven multi-media theatrical/dance performances, and on the other hand smaller-scale objects, installations and videos which are inspired by the current state and general use of Internet and mobile technology.
