Documentary on the latest Hacking the Body 2.0 work - Flutter/Stutter and Feel Me
Hacking the Body and HTB2.0 is an ongoing research project about biosensor, wearables and performance. It explores using the concept of hacking data to re-purpose and re-imagine biofeedback from the body. It investigates understandings of states of the body and hacking them to make new artworks such as performance, installation and visual artefacts.
This is a video that shows the HTB 2.0 new iteration of the project and performances pieces in development, led by artistic directors/ project leaders Camille Baker and Kate Sicchio. It shows the experimentation and user/ dancer testing of new prototype of custom wearable tech/e-textile costumes, developed by collaborators Tara Baoth Mooney for the costume design using sustainable materials and processes, and Becky Stewart designing and developing the hardware and software components for the wearable tech/e-textile garments.
