Do I exist, without my smartwatch?
In my performance, ‘Do I exist, without my smartwatch?’ I question the relationship between the human body and wearable technology. Devices that map out our systems to get a better grip on ourselves or even to create a better version. During the performance the device and I work together towards one goal, where structural movements and streams of thought are directed by the statistics. Longing for approval of my being.
The supporting work consisting of four screens shows the minimal choreography from the performance, executed by a digital model where the whole body is engaged. Creating new shapes with the body.
