Picture of the flipside circus troupe performing Statum at the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Developed in conjunction with Flipside Circus and the transmedia collective ‘Counterpilot’, I created theatrical heart rate monitors and pedometers. My custom-built hardware was incorporated into a series of techno-circus experiments. Statum explored the interplay between human bodies and technology – audiences are invited to inhabit performer’s bodies, analyse their heart rate, and explore the interplay between acrobats.

Season:

  • 2019/10/17 - 2019/10/27, Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane (AU)
