The Second Spine

I externalized my body part, the spine as a robot that controls by a muscle sensor attached to my arm. With this gesture, I consider how a body can extrude its awareness and action onto other bodies in other places. After multiple iterations, the prototype became an exo-skeleton spine that I controlled and was installed on another’s body, becoming an alternate operational entity that is spatially distributed but electronically connected.
