Project Proposal

Illustrate how , like masks, the networks frame, mirror, mediate, catalyse , transform, show emotions of, classify or hide the users.

Creating a 3D textile sculpture , artefact , installation responding to data either transmitted by remote sensors or by internet actuators ( Twitter, Facebook etc…)
Show the entanglement between machines and humans :
The sculpture swill emulate the meeting between humans and machines , as a memorial artefact .

Crafting one of the Network masks and its artefacts :costume, headdress, accessories, behaviour, dance steps, songs, texts….

Mask improvisation workshops to understand how we actualise in our bodies , the network; ( check the documentation “creative soup”)

propose a scenario for a mask to explore the relations between humans and machines in the network.
you are the machine, the hardware , the software, the code, the portal, the algorithm, the coder, the screen, the human, a data, ….list all the possible characters and try to mach a mask

Providing a physical environment
to reveal our networked self,
to show the impact on our social interactions ,
to show the impact on our relation with our body.

  • –  Exploitation of the body of the network
  • –  performativity of the network
  • –  Relations of power
  • –  Which side of the string are you – is there a side in entanglements?

Things about Research Methodology


 C.R. KOTHARI,  Research methodology and technics ,2004, NEW AGE INTERNATIONAL (P) LIMITED, PUBLISHERS

“Thus, when we talk of research methodology
we not only talk of the research methods but also consider the logic behind the methods we use in the context of our research study and explain why we are using a particular method or technique and why we are not using others so that research results are capable of being evaluated either by the researcher himself or by others”
