Body Spaces explores physicality and space, public access and intimacy, physical absence and digital presence. From ghostly video projections, stories and photographs emerge sensings of urban spaces inhabited in unfamiliar ways. Traces of previous habitations haunt the location, and motion-sensors invite the spectator to engage in the visual memory of dancing bodies. 3 site-specific installations, created by Petra Kuppers and collaborators, in a residency with young disabled people. Commissioned as part of Digital Summer 2000, presented October 2000, Manchester.
A different version of Body Spaces was exhibited as part of Digital Arts and Culture, April 2001, Brown University, Rhode Island.
