    I am currently reading a book by Steve Dixon entitled “Digital Performance.” In one section, where he talks about the Futurist’s thoughts and actions influencing performance and art itself, he talked about a very important theme within the Third and Seventh video: the camera. While discussing a lot about long exposures (which a lot of people explored with the body project last year), he delved into the ideas of the camera, technology, and performance (all of which are employed in this video).

    “The futurists used the mechanical eye of the camera to suggest a new view of the world, a mechanical one, able to observe and preserve time and space in a way beyond normal human capabilities. In the computer age, the same philosophy is at play, but the new digital eye enables the visions and predictions of the futurist theater to be realized fully and with relative ease. Thus, the once idealistic and grandiose plans of stage designer Fortunato Depero in ca. 1916 have become commonplace reality through ubiquitous software applications such as Adobe’s Photoshop and AfterEffects.”
