Focusing on communication and connectivity, Prototype (Phase 1) probes simulated realities, virtual representations, and primal instincts through the medium of digital performance.

Over the course of the performance, the audience member is visually, aurally and kinaesthetically led through sites of interaction by the scattered iterations of a computer sprite. These range from the fantastical/pre-recorded to the hyperreal/live, designed to crystallise and/or muddy the journey of the audience. Through attempts to construct their own identity, the sprite challenges the audience’s perceptions of self, meaning and interpersonal connection in a digitised culture.
