*artist statement

The work is created by an AI, based on photographs of the artist testing the physicality of their body by stretching, bending, and twisting into different poses. The resulting figure is a digital cyborg, a human form extended by use of machine. The figure dances, fluidly shifting from one pose to the next. The work is an equal collaboration between man and machine, and is of the present moment, grounded in the reality of the artists body as it exists now in time, but also speaks to the future, created by an AI that has the potential to create new dances ad infinitum.
