Biomechanical returns

‘Biomechanical’ is a fascinating bot performance produced in Second Life. The installation was built by Jo Ellsmere, and returns to the Split Screen Installation Space in Second Life during January 2016 for about six weeks.

The installation was inspired by the actor training methods developed by Russian theater director Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940). More information on the installation can be found at Dividni Shostakovich’s blog Division Street / Divided Path: Encounters with Art, Artists and Arguments in Second Life®.

This video covers a complete performance cycle.
