MODULE #7 (PERFORM POSITIONS INSIDE A MOVING STRUCTURE) is a multi-layered artwork which unfolds itself over a longer, indefinite period of time – both in the physical and virtual space, a permanent, continuous movement.

MODULE #7 (PERFORM POSITIONS INSIDE A MOVING STRUCTURE) questions the spatial relationships between different actors – the display, objects and audience – who negotiate and perform their relationships in-between one and another inside the installation.

A performer moves through the exhibition space, enters the installation – the stage – scans their movement, positions their body – examines their relationship to the artwork. Based on a digital score [3D-model of stages, see photo] the performer moves the objects inside the exhibition space, rebuilds the structure – changes the existing constellations and undermines them.

The performer not only documents their own movement with a mobile 3D scanning application, but also changes the work itself – records new positions and models the resulting momentary data into the virtual space.

Multilayered motherboards
unfolding over time.

Spatial relationships
of human and non-human actors.

Performing displayed objects and space -
with a repertoire of moves.

Move.
Rotate.
Align.
Position.
Perform!

Record positions.
Model new relationships
into the virtual space.

Archiving movements
of a constantly changing structure.

Digital technologies as prosthetics
for ideas about form-making.
