[TISEA 1992] Artist Statement: Thecla Schiphorst – LifeForms

Artist Statement


This performance dance piece explores the interactive relationship between the performer’s movement, effects on lighting, sound, text and image. LifeForms, a 3 dimensional choreographic tool, is used to create movement for the performer as well as for the virtual performers and images projected into the space. The performer, wearing a wireless microphone controls lighting intensity, colour, and trajectory, via voice and pressure activated triggered events. The performer serves as a link via her own voice, body and movement, and the computer as midi interpreter connecting projected human forms, images, sound, and active moving light sources.
