At this event, renowned Dutch collective JODI will premiere a new mobile application, outfitted for iPhone and Android, that is invested in “Motion/ Figure/ Posture Actions.” The application records users’ quotidian movements and turns them into choreography—one that captures our awkward, mundane, frustrated, addicted interactions with our ubiquitous devices. This focus on dynamics of control, as well as the psychology and behavior produced by technology, is at the core of JODI’s work. For this presentation, the collective will present and discuss the work, and hired performers will enact its choreography.
JODI are looking for performers to participate in Untitled (mobile app) + (one more thing). Participants must have the iPhone4 and must be ready and willing to download JODI's app and demonstrate it during the performance. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
