1999 - 2001, Perfomance /Installation.
A performance unraveling the strange nature of dual identity. Dropping sequences of dance, film, digital art and sound into the same performance environment, exploring the body as digital image. Viking Shoppers unfolds as an intriguing mix of new media work. Both the design and choreography are inspired by the physical and cultural landscapes of Iceland, and the dual identity present in telematic performance and motion capture. Live dancers explore relationships with their virtual, digital, and spiritual selves through the use of interactive movement sequences and real-time ascii cameras. Viking Shoppers features the celebrated music of Icelandic band Sigur Ros.
