Shroud/Chrysalis

Shroud/Chrysalis is a performative interactive installation in which spectators are invited to be wrapped in a copper fabric shielding by two female attendants. When wrapped, the spectator becomes totally immersed in a wireless circuit, lying on a glass table inspired by those used in early electricity treatments to unground patients. Unplugging users of their electromagnetic environment Shroud/Chrysalis reverses the accepted notion of wireless signals that habitually submerge us. Is it a body bag or the signal of a post-human rebirth? Catherine Richards is a visual artist working with old and new technologies.
