Investigating on the relationship between surveillance and private space
Rayzhekov’s project ‘10VE’ is a participatory musical biofeedback and movement composition for two actuators and an audience. It interconnects contemporary electronic music, performance and participatory art through technology.
The project started in 2014 by Antoni Rayzhekov and Katharina Köller within the ATALAIA Artes art residency, Ourique (Portugal) and was later i.a. performed in Frankfurt at NODE15 Forum for Digital Arts.
