Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #2 - www .google .com
The Code=The Choreography
Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a ten-part live performance series, which utilizes Web code as choreography. In the performance of google.com on October 3, 2009, three dancers, two performers, the audience, and the artist will shape together the course of the show.
The source code of the website - its HTML tags - is interpreted live on stage into new dance movements, which are immediately translated into text-based descriptions and then stored online in the html-movement-library. This information is reused on stage as new instruction material, and then recycled yet anew...
As the data performance progresses, more html-movements are developed, stored and altered by all the participants. The user (=the audience) takes an active role in the performance of google.com.
