Hannah G. Thompson and Arvid Tomayko come together in this work using their bodies as conductive material with in an installation of fabric sculptures reactive to touch and light through the use of a light reactive Theremin. The performers uncovers new layers and morph Thompson’s sculptural works using their bodies and movement. They contends with the constraints, while blooming to soundscapes both mixed and created by their interactions with the touch sensors. Using saturated colors and unsettling images the pair distort the state of consciousness people assume is stable, by unpacking and unraveling sculptures with bodily connotations. The audience‚Äôs engagement with the performance is the way in which they are reframed by viewing us perform the reckoning of our body, our skins, and the space surrounding us. Through the intense visual experience of morphing sculptures we are hoping to bring to mind questions of personal boundaries in the comfort of everyday interactions.
