Strange Body

Strange Body is an interactive performance that tackles the confluence of artistic practices, technological experimentation, and critical/political/social reflection. The artist, using a technological sound apparatus adapted to make himself into a strange body/foreign object, walks through the streets of the city, seeking ephemeral connections with passers-by and exploring testimony, contact, and reaction.
