Body Noise | Cyborg Synesthesia
Quimera Rosa (Pink Chimera) is a lab that researches and experiments on body, technology and identities, whose work has been presented in streets, art centers, bars, universities, concert halls, museums, squats and festivals. From a transfeminist and post-identity perspective, they make bodies a platform for public intervention, breaking up limits between public and private. They understand sexuality as a technological and artistic creation and seek to experiment hybrid, flexible and changing identities able to blur frontiers between natural/artificial, normal/abnormal, man/woman, human/machine, hetero/homo, art/life, human/animal, reality/fiction… The most of our work is developed in a collaborative way, and always under DIY technologies and free culture paradigm.
This workshop is based on the construction of an electronic device called [BodyNoise Amp]. With this device, the body’s electrical activity can be transformed into sound through contact between two or more bodies. After making the device, we will use the [BN A] to play and experiment with the possibilities of tactile/sound synesthesia, and the de-construction of perception and identity this brings about. As an outcome of the workshop, we’ll work collectively on a small interactive installation aimed at fathoming the boundaries between human, animal, machine, plant and mineral… the public will be able to move among bodies, machines and plants connected to the [BN A]. The interaction of the public will generate a jam of noise, where it will be impossible for them to distinguish the hierarchy or normality of the different life forms present… or else they will simply enjoy listening to the sound produced by X number of life forms.
Workshop limited to 15 participants.
