Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Borderline is a text-video-sound artwork and a performative piece concerned with time-based and improvisational action, in which two participants interact together within an audio-visual environment to gain a sense of the projects latent narrative content. The narrative is based on borderline personality disorder (visualizing the problems of disassociation and hysteria through image, movement and narrative structure). Borderline re-deploys VJ software technologies to develop a dual interaction experience that uses hand-based gesture (via two graphic tablets and their pens) instead of the established hyperlink model. This helps to foster a computer system as instrument analogy in which the participants can improvise play perform sets of narrative content. The textual elements can be randomly accessed at any moment and any part of the piece can be triggered, sped up, rewound or forwarded by using the pen and tablet interface.
