Release is a solo performance piece using live motion
capture, video projection and the hanging body. It explores
findings on the mechanisms of memory and its relationship
to brain and body in Neuroscience and Eastern Medicine.
It asks questions about the neural, physical, emotional
and aesthetic nature of memory retrieval.
The research will use essexdance's motion-capture unit.
Rocamora will perform while suspended, employing live
motion-capture and pads on the body, along with biographical
video clips from her past. The computer will react to
given muscle groups and body articulations, triggering
video footage. The artist will research into neuroscience
and Eastern Medicine linked to the architecture of memory
- the way it is captured, held and then released into
our consciousness once more. An external nervous system
formed by motion capture and computer-video projectors
will represent the internal process.
