A paired physical and digital experience driving internal body rhythm.


MY STUDY

As a professional dancer, I’m a huge believer that the body’s rhythm is derived from the cadence of the sounds entering the ear canals. I was fascinated on the impact of psychoacoustics on the body, and presented myself with a challenge: can I physicalize a phenomena that occurs so organically that isn’t visible to the naked eye? 

I decided to center my experiment around a workout app that was connected to a Objet d’ art; as a means to prompt the body to create different states of heart rates; while displaying it in a non-screen-based tabletop display.

the side hustle of 2015 – 2021

For 6 years, I dedicated my career to dance performance and creating movement for the stage, while exploring what design meant to me as an artist.
why it mattered

That gave me the time and space to breathe new life into my interdisciplinary arts-based research around the fluid categorization of identities in tangent with the self.
