BACKSCATTER - interactive visuals, music, performance by Wetcircuit (Holly Daggers). Premiered at ReVISION by Forward Motion Theater January 14th, 2011

Backscatter technology is used by the TSA – a division of Homeland Security – to perform random full-body scans of airline passengers. The scanners create “ionizing radiation”, X-rays powerful enough to strip molecules in the body of their electrons. Charged particles launch from the skin back into the scanner, producing a ghostly nude image that is literally created from body matter.

Fourth Amendment rights are forfeit when passengers consent to the search.
