The ongoing performative action is a live feed, determined by user preferences and a content ranking algorithm, enacted by performers in motion capture suits, while no actual motion capture is taking place, no reconstruction of their abstracted body signals apart from the one in the audience’s imagination. Working with online ranking logic and physical distance, the action transforms meaning and information back and forth, from calculable input and abstract frames to sensuous, embodied presence.
Browse through and select content for a “Top 30 Most Relevant Stories” that will be enacted everyday during the live ongoing action.

Performance Schedule 4.6.–18.9.2016
Monday–Friday: 4–6 pm
