MACHINA

DescriptionThe education of feelings in a woman is a cathartic process that has something sacred and ritual. We Rebuild it in the flutter of a performance, in a communication with gestures, touch and body fluids. We bring out of our female bodies all the symbols of our slavery to Perfection and Beauty. More than any creature of this earth, we do not accept the contradictions that are the most authentic aspect of Life, in its absolute lack of meaning.
We try to mend a sense abandoning the linear paths. We accept the absurd like a curved iron bar thrown into the gears.

LITTLE PILL BLUES
255.36 kB
The rabbit got out of the cylinder to show us the banality of evil. It tells us a story in three acts about the origin of power, playing with colored paper cut-out shapes.

The performance is based on interaction design and video mapping. The sounds are generated live, according to the color of all the paper objects that are shown to the camera, which frames the white belly of the rabbit. Each color is associated with a sound that is emitted and modulated by the synthesizer, according to the movement of the hands. The colors, once "activated", also launch graphic animations, which are projected on the white rabbit mask suspended in the air.

The concept of performance is an invitation to violate our personal space, to overcome the illusory security that is both culturally and physically. The escape from this invisible shell, yet so powerful, it is accompanied by sound. With the tools of computer vision, Francesca Fini has mapped the space where the performance takes place, inserting virtual objects that are activated in perfect synesthesia, by the smallest movement of the performer. The space becomes a sensitive place to the emotions expressed by the movement, a place that meets and interacts with us, generating images and sounds. The sounds are modulated according to the intensity and speed of movement, like a musical instrument capable of giving physical reality to social conventions, to the invisible prisons, to the the antibodies of our own cultural identity.
