aiya meets self

"aiya meets self  is a interactive installation utilizing pose detection and machine improvisation to create an audiovisual dialogue. With her installation the artist Melody Chua is creating a space between an improvisation machine, its creator, and the tensions that exist between the two as they navigate each other as ‘others’ and also as integral parts of each other’s identity and embodiment."
