‘Conduit Online Edition’ is a live streamed Digital Performance incorporating motion capture with live movement. It is an adaption of the work 'Conduit' and was reconfigured to fit an online format in response to Covid-19 lockdown. The physical body is represented via a webcam feed, placed side by side with the virtual avatar and broadcast via a YouTube live stream. This alternate configuration of the work meditates on the limitations and differences between virtual and physical bodies, particularly in light of our new sensitivity to the fallible nature of the physical body. It explores the differing capabilities of each form, as well our entangled and complex connections to our virtual avatars and to technology as a whole.
