Central to the construction of the cyborg is informational
pathways connecting the organic body to its prosthetic
extensions. The idea of the feedback loop implies that the
boundaries of the autonomous subject are up for grabs
since feedback loops can flow not only within the subject
but also between the subject and the environment. Multiple shards of light refract onto an open space shifting the surface of the body and destabilizing the idea of
the autonomous body. Here the boundary between the
physical and virtual body fluctuates before our eyes.
I’m trying to build my face as an interface of the environment
and the gazing of people. The face recognition camera will control the mirror to track the position of the face. A feedback loop is created to evoke the psychological state of self
gaze when the audience interacts with performers and device.
