For the NIME conference, Marije Baalman will perform Chrysalis, a performative environment where the focus is on slow movements – becoming aware of the minimal movements of the body, both conscious and unconscious movements. It is about interaction on a long timescale – involving multiple senses (hearing, sight, haptic).
In the first phase the project is developed as a performance in which the maker herself is the performer of these small movements; by interchanging with livecoding the process of making the environment will be made visible, while the audience at the same time witnesses the outcome from the outside.
In the second phase of the project, the environment will be expanded to a costume or object, that the visitor can enter or wear to have the experience herself.
