"if-then-else"

collaboration with Tarren Johnson
performance installation with 4 vocalists, 3 performers, 45 minutes

State of the Art Berlin
2015

"if-then-else" sets out to test the invisible entanglements between physical bodies, voices and a constantly shifting architectural configuration, manually rearranged according to the directions of an algorithm. The algorithm's output triggers a chain of actions. A communication system of vocal melodies corresponds to particular glass panels and locations within the installation. Vocalists and bodies work to accomplish the configurations, running up against obstacles when attempting to spacialize the data.
