Gazing Figures

GAZING FIGURES (2017) is a performance piece that Jasper Meiners and Isabel Paehr developed as experiment no 8 in their research series future perspectives. It is driven by the question how moving and seeing are interlinked. The work consists of a performer wearing a VR suit powered by Raspberry Pi computers, a terrarium containing the jumping spider Phidippus Regius and screens that mediate between the performer’s and the visitor’s point(s) of view. Like a jumping spider, the performer uses multiple visual sensors and can see through webcams attached to their wrists and knees.
