Make a Baby – Lucky Dragons
Make a Baby is the generic term for an ongoing series of experiments into the possibilities of using skin contact between performers as a means of transmitting and controlling data and creating a positive social environment. Audience members are invited to participate, building up and breaking down resistive networks by “passing” signals from skin to skin. Measured changes in these networks are used to play a series of software instruments, allowing for spontaneous bands of touchers to crystallize and disperse all over the place, at once, over and over.
We’re using a knit and applique rug with woven circuits as the touch controller.
