Multi-Performance polymer

Fall 2016

Team : Haya Alnibari

Multi-Performance Polymer exists in the meeting of distraction and attention. This space accommodates three
levels of performances that captures the vision and level of attention of moving bodies in 140 Broadway. The main surface parameters involve studying the polymer behavior (compression and tension) Each color reflect the level of inflection that is produced from the polymer animation study. The social site conditions (distraction and focus) manifest a series of converging and diverging public and private activities. When a body is focused, it is translated to a direct path with minor inflection and porosity giving it an intimate
state. Unlike when a body is in distraction, it is translated to a more opaque, indirect path with major inflections. This proposal gives the opportunity for two different reactions to come together creating an experimental performance.
