Body Interfaces: zero-level elevation

Performance at the sea-coast in Bergen, the Mill (NO)

For the performance intervention at Piksel 2016, Body Interfaces will be used to challenge and work with the scientific concept of “zero-level elevation” (equaling the sea-level), used to map surfaces in topography. The departure point will be a site specific intervention on a selected area nearby the sea in Bergen. This method will be challenged as a performance concept and instrument to gather information from the Body Interfaces interactions. The data collected will be notated on site as a part of the performance as well as samples will be gathered for further use. The performance will challenge scientific methods and concepts as well as introduce new ways to structure and collect information, where chance and failure are accepted conceptions of the performative process.
