Double Helix Collective is an interdisciplinary new media performance project by Sabrina Lastman (Sound) and Petronio Bendito (Visuals). The collective explores visual poetics of the intersection of music, light, shadow, drawing, software, videoart, ritual, improvisation and poetry. In the performances, body and technology are in constant figure/ground negotiation. Central to its aesthetics is the notion of human and digital processes as a way to reclaim the physicality and accountability of the human expressive experience in a world increasingly automated.
Double Helix Collective premiered at Purdue University’s Fountain Gallery on Dec. 19, 2013.
