This workshop led by Harold Offeh will playfully explore the potential of the body, actions and gestures as recorded through cameras. It will exploring how actions and movements can be developed for and mediated by the device.
The selfie workshop is ideal for performers, dancers and selfie experts and draws on histories of video art, performance and dance. Up to 10 participants will explore links between movement and live recording, allowing speculative and playful forms of choreography and performance.
This workshop will take place within our exhibition Permanent Distraction by Rafael Rozendaal. Participants will need a smartphone that has a camera function.
