(antiquated) AUGMENTED REALITY For the performance of (antiquated) Augmented Reality, the ability to transform a 2D shadow image into 3D lent itself to a symbolic kinetic enactment of modern media’s departures from the male gaze; a flat feminine form transforms into a fully dimensional one as she walks out of a television set. Combined with the Fordist notion of the feminine form as a mass-produced consumer good the work sets up choreographed repetitive motions that are broken by the ability to reach into the z-axis to create gestures of intimacy.

(a)AR was created directly after the McEvoy commission. As I watched the dancers in the gallery the theme of liberation repeated itself through  various gestures. While at REDCAT a new group of dancers, a choreographer and composer worked to develop the dance performance.
