Every day we perform ourselves in digital space. In “Not Not 0.1,” I use my own custom software and a motion capture camera to generate projected graphics, text, and images of myself. I immerse myself in these projections. In a duet with my digital double, I dance between the virtual and the real. I challenge the boundary between the digital and the physical, and the stability of gesture and language. Eventually my double takes on a life of her own. I leave the stage and she continues.

All images are generated in real time using custom software written in Processing and a live feed from the Microsoft Kinect motion-tracking camera.
