re:self->com

If “->” is seen as insertion, as input, as a black box function…

And “re:” is seen as an optional prefix, implying redo/relook/recursion…etc…

Then…

This is a show regarding self->re:composition and self->re:representation. (Pause)

Contained between the self->re:fractured and the self->produced, this solo persona spirals around re:representations by a prosthetic self->puppet and video feedback. Finding fractal self similarity in the representation of the representation.

This can be seen, in no particular order, as:

0) A non-dualistic ritual, merging the self with the camera, self with the puppet, self with Shamanic music, self with the projected image : – to produce the re:combined self.

1) Attentively re:routing and letting go to allow self->organisation out of the structured chaos of multiple cameras, projectors and selves.

2) A complex re:com:position, onto, into, through each other, for the Other:

a mash up

a self->made mash up

a mash up of the self

Working from Mark Coniglio’s model for “Digital Intervention” instead of “Digital Reflection”, Keith succeeds in producing a show where he is the co-creator with the technology. Using multiple camera, multi projector video feedback and puppetry, “re:self” re:questions the self through refracted, rerouted, mandala like imagery.

What is real? What is re:reproduced? Does any difference matter?
