How does the body exist in time and in place? How is it that we recognize ourselves through memory or experience? And in defining ourselves as a presence in that space, how do we know where we are? ... For the project/proposal/performance/intervention I have an interactive installation that would invite/expect the audience to interact or intervene within its space. This piece, a clear vinyl tent would become, simultaneously, both observation and play space. By design, the piece operates as a reverse panopticon. The audience could enter, sit inside and feel insulated from the outside environment, all the while becoming the point of observation -- for the present audience and --from an overhead camera, the disassociated audience viewing the projected overhead image from a monitor in another location. Awareness of viewing the disassociated spaces allows the audience to consider the implications of a comprehending the affects of the intervention and the way we often elevate received data to the status of information, making evaluations without understanding the whole.
