Talker Performance (2008)

by 1033049

this is an art performance in which a latex suit is connected to the internet through several interfaces. The people act on the dancer by using interfaces that create stimulations on the dancer's body. One of the interfaces is connected to a netart project called Talker (hence the name of the performance)

in which a collaborative system allows internet users to feed text into a linguistic artificial intelligence. In the performance people feed text live into the Talker and the sentences synthesized by the artificial intelligence are pronounced by a sound system implanted on the latex suit and, thus, on the dancer's body. The dancer's movements control the videos on stage, creating a complete synesthesia. During the performance the audience can interact by using two terminals in front of the stage. More info at:
