Body of Noise Poster
This event is the culminating fellowship presentation of multimedia artist Jessica Tucker, who is this year's Grant Wood Fellow in Interdisciplinary Performance. Hosted by the Theatre Arts Department, she has been researching, teaching, and creating with digital body-tracking technologies.  In her work, she is interested in how these tools reflect and reproduce dominant models of reality, selfhood, and subjectivity.

About Body of Noise:

Nonsense. Disturbance. Randomness. Noise obfuscates the signal, and oh, how we long for the signal.
Find me. Detect my edges. Filter out the noise and find me, follow me, stay with me, keep me going. 

Complex bodies emerge through technological translation, as the artist coerces body-tracking devices into mesmerizing dysfunction. A series of poetic experiments unfolds, and noise is clarified as a medium for orienting ourselves and understanding our place-ness in an ever-shifting reality.

Showtimes are:

Friday April 5, 8pm
