Performance at Slought Foundation, Philadelphia, USA Videography: Ellen Zweig
creation date: 2005
Second part of a two stage performance, Morphology/ Face Shift
which was performed at the Slought Foundation Philadelphia PA USA in 2005. In this algorithmic facial choreography piece, both sides of the face are controlled by identical algorithms, but one is slightly faster, over time creating visual shifting patterns from symmetry to asymmetry (and back again). Over the duration of the facial dance piece, the execution of the algorithms is accelerated.
Two DECtalk voice synthesis machines are deployed on each side of the face, calling out the identification numbers of the activated muscles.
Face Shift has recently been acquired
by The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Note: full length performance, duration 00:23:46.
