Cameraoke is a proposition for exploring a pre-recorded trajectory through space by "replaying" it on a digital camera. While looking at the video on the camera's screen, the spectator is invited to guide his or her motions through space in an attempt to accurately retrace the movements he or she perceives in the video. Much like karaoke is a re-interpretation of a song, Cameraoke functions as a re-interpretation of another person's visual experience in a space.
Filmed at Bains Connective during the Visions residency, March 2013. Visions is a research project on poetic documentation based on Lisa Nelson's work, by Anouk Llaurens and guests.
