Breaching Transmissions

Immersive audiovisual performance with Sally Golding, taking the audience on a hallucinogenic dark carnival ride exploring the slippage between parapsychology and technology.

Exploring themes of ‘transmission’ and ‘medium’, Breaching Transmissions implicates the audience as participant by harnessing abstract infrared camera images of the viewer’s bodies in space to reconfigure the typical performer-technology-audience relationship. A sensory assault probing the ‘haunted’ in modern media, inhabiting the space between illusion and perception to manifest spectral horror and the etheric double.
