Unconscious Play is about Chance Composition. This method of making sound art was proposed by John Cage since 1950s. Introducing chance into art making has a number of important consequences: it diminishes the control over the artistic product, and it mirrors the randomness of everyday life.
“This is an on-going project that aims to extend gestural movement of both performer and audience in performative context by utilizing the a captured live data feed from wearable sensors and mobile phones to generate algorithmic motion graphics. The ultimate goal of the project is to create a participatory visual performance that encourage participant and performer to move their body. While VJ curated the data feed and translate it into visual graphic that corresponds with the narrative of the performance. Source code of the project can be view on github”
