Breakwall

Megan Pitcher's avatar Megan Pitcher

Breakwall includes several iterations of participatory, open sourced movement and ensemble sound art with the body as instrument. This work explores the underlying openness of body-centric philosophies in contrast to the limiting processes of acculturation. I reference bodies as original source material and instigate movement exploration as a method for reconsidering social boundaries. Breakwall highlights the similarities between feedback systems and identity formation. In both cases, physical acts are compounded and magnified through repetition, accumulation, distribution, and reconstruction. We are not defined by a single act, but we grow to become representations of our collected actions. This interdisciplinary work combines installation, performance, new media, and social practice. Sound art created through real time processing via original Max MSP patch by artist Megan Pitcher.
