Bloodbath was the creative development and beta testing of a live event: . 5 artists, who work with data visualisation and or the body, each create a work that responds to live incoming data from collisions in a Sydney Roller Derby League, all-girl flat track roller derby game. Sensors attached to players send information to a server. The server sends that data on to the artworks.
Bloodbath Live Event October 2010, Hordern Pavilion, Sydney, Australia.
Artists involved are: Francesca daRimini, Linda Dement, Nancy Mauro-Flude, Kate Richards, Sarah Waterson with the Sydney Roller Derby League
My work for this is titled Axle Grind and features a robotic guitar that is triggered live by bumps and collisions from the players on track.
