Test Cycle 21

Experimental short
720p, 5'10''

This film shows the development process of "Behaviouristic Instruments": a series of performative music instruments which pick up intrinsic body states such as anciety, happiness and laughter. The short exemplifies the fate of the 21st test subject who volunteered to play a guinea pig for the quality tests within the laboratories of "Behaviouristics Ltd.".

An abstract dispute with the aesthetics and epistemologies of science, laboratory and interface culture. In collaboration with Steffen Fiedler and Charlotte Jarvis. Please also see the project "We Play Bodies".
