Abstract

HR is a mixed reality project that merges expressive elements from computer animation and performance art via Smartsuit motion capture technology. Taking place in both the virtual and the physical world, HR explores themes of labour performativity and efficiency under the current neoliberal political system. As performers interact with props and one another, a virtual rendition of the performance is created inside a game engine in real-time, and projected onto the back wall of the performance space. Created in support of digital artist John Butler's residency with the ISO digital design studio and curator Tommaso Ranfagni's thesis project, HR showed as an off-site project part of the Glasgow School of Art Graduate Degree Show 2019.
