Through responsive dance, “[radical] signs of life” externalizes the mind’s non-hierarchical distribution of
thought. Music is generated from the dancers‘ muscles and blood flow via biophysical sensors that capture
sound waves from the performers’ bodies. This data triggers complex neural patterns to be projected onto
multiple screens as 3D imagery. As the audience interacts with the images produced, they enter into a dialogue
with the dancers. Conceptually, the piece is an embodied examination of self-organizing systems and the
increasing disparity between the encroachment of bio-data and the quiet discord of bio-memory. The work
reveals the dangerous legacy of cybernetics, and awakens an urgent need for inserting the body and affect into
technology before technology further embeds itself inside of us.
