Central to the construction of the cyborg is the
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 as a tool for gazing at 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 devices.
