NUDE. Does censorship reveal the point at which we exceed the limits of the status quo?

 

NUDE is a tridimensional audiovisual experience made up of eighteen translucid fabrics assembled to create a unique maze of video projections. The audience is invited to enter and disturb the projection, being the manipulation of spatial perception the primary axis guiding the environment.

 

Two facing projections were played during the installation, each of them showing a dancer performing recorded from frontal and rear perspective respectively. The pixelization of the final footage was generated by using the sound of breathing and movements made by the dancer as information.

The fold-out multi-layered gauze display expands the physical space of the screen and allows the interaction with the public to develop a narrative about the body expression in new media; that is at the same time being constructed and deconstructed by context.

Censorship and personal expression were the key concepts to work with during the development of the piece, specifically how the Internet regulates the (female) body. A way to encourage others to ask questions about who is deciding what is ‘offensive’ on social media, and inspire conversations about how that reflects on our society.
