“How do we find each other,” asks the Invisible Committee in The Coming Insurrection. Performed at Highways Performance Space, A Night of Transanarchism, April 6, 2012, Find Each Other is based on two custom made proximity sensing garments that use Xbee wireless mesh networking to activate electroluminescent wire when in each other's presence. Find Each Other is an experimental movement piece in which two performers explore space to the sound of poetry, using proximity sensing electronic garments from the Autonets series. Autonets is inspired by an urge to create technologies to facilitate communication for community based, anti-racist, prison abolitionist responses to gendered violence, creating networked fashion to reimagine social organization.
