Stelarc, one of Australia’s leading performance artists, and the KMD, Keio Media Design team will present a performance event at CCBT- Civic Creative Base Tokyo.
In a career spanning over 50 years, Stelarc has been interrogating alternative anatomical architectures, augmenting the body with a Third Hand, an Extended Arm and 6-legged walking robots. He has an Extra Ear, surgically constructed on his arm.
In this performance he will be incorporating a 3D printed headset and custom engineered electronics to acoustically amplify breath, muscle and heartbeat signals and also allow his body to become the video switcher and mixer live during the performance. These sensor systems have been developed by engineers and researchers at KMD lab since the Spring of 2023. Sensor Bracelets developed at JOLT Arts in Melbourne, will augment the bio-data sounds.
The live, interactive performance generates a synchronicity of sound, image and movement, the body becoming an extended operational system, reimagining and reconfiguring what a body is, how a body performs and probing what it now means to be human.
