Performance Activation of Trace2 by Teow Yue Han
Trace2, a new commission by Teow Yue Han, explores the lingering presence of TraceTogether and the layers of geofencing, bio-surveillance and new forms of life that might emerge, especially with those that arise from the gradual decommissioning of the contact tracing system.
The performance activation of Trace2 brings together live movement by Bernice Lee, augmented by text and sounds by Federico Ruberto with a self-trained model (IA-AI) and a modular synthesiser. It transforms the museum into a site of transmission and symbiosis – inviting the audience to interact with Trace2 and generate new forms of collective intelligence.
After the activation, hang back for a short sharing by the artist and his collaborators on their ideas and processes behind the work.
