Part of A Grand Exposition: Sci-Art

DeviceD is an audiovisual installation performed by a dancer receiving performance instructions from twitter interactions. An array of wearable bidirectional sensors vibrate according to online posts, allowing audiences to control the performer.

Engage with the installation by interacting on the specific twitter channels the system is monitoring for activity, and in turn conduct the performer’s improvised choreography.

Follow DeviceD on Twitter to find out more about how to get involved.

You can also experience DeviceD as part of GameLab on 21 and 22 October
