Thinking of Machine Times in terms of Body Time, Sara Diamond
(CA) has brought a couple of new media projects from the
Banff Center together which deal with the human/machine
interval, the physical possibilities and limitations of
the body wrapped in machine times. Included in the evening
were Bacteria – an audio-visual jamsession by Arcangel
Constantini (MX) and The Secret Project – a performance
by Jools Gilson-Ellis, Richard Povall (UK) and technology.
