"Symbiosis" is a mutually beneficial relationship between different organisms. What techniques can we use to create new forms of embodiment communication between organisms? Exploring the disparity of perception within the real and the virtual, this installation consists of three layers. In the first layer, a body is trapped in a virtual world that the audience cannot perceive. The person disappears under the digital layer of the virtual self of this body, that is ultimately dependent, symbiotically, on the physical body. These bodies swing between oblivion and memory, experiencing an endless fusion between real and virtual. The audience is connected with this symbiotic organism through external tactile stimuli and is being questioned about what experience means to us.
The choreographic installation "Symbiosis" was created as a piece of artistic practice focusing on exhibition’s audience. The performance took place at "Everything Happens So Much" for the London Design Festival 2018 at London College of Communication.
It also exhibited in "Ars Electronica" Festival – with the theme of "Error - The art of imperfection" on September 2018.
