to have some (practitioner to practitioner) discussion. Here it goes:
Last month I was kindly invited by Laboratoire Paragraphe, Université PARIS
8, to make a live performance of mine called Deriva (Catalan word for
"drifting"). The action began with a social situation in which a group of
people gathered in a public space and spent time together talking, laughing
and filling up a bunch of party balloons with helium. After a while, I took
a smartphone, turned on its GPS and activated an ordinary live audio/video
streaming application. When we had about a hundred helium filled balloons,
I attached the smartphone to them and let it go, up in the sky, out of my
After we lost visual contact with them, we walked into a classroom, we sat
in front of a computer, opened a web browser and followed the live
streaming of the drifting smartphone as well as its trace on a map. After
we lost this virtual contact (probably due to restrictions of my prepaid
data sim card), I manipulated the resulting video file simply by inverting
the frame order, and here is the result: http://deriva.tv
Thank you for reading, watching and (perhaps) commenting.
