new eyes - for [single] player is an audio-visual performance designed for two projectors and one performer.

Through-out the work, a generative light sculpture is manipulated through a series of limited performer interventions. The piece seeks to subvert the standard relationship between player and instrument by creating consequence and complication for every action. These parameters are displayed for the audience as the performer attempts to shape the light and sound, while confronting a shifting interface and increasing instability. Two final outcomes are possible:

  1. the number of allowed actions are performed

  2. the system eats itself
