Dreadmill

Dreadmill involves hardwiring a computer to a treadmill so that a runner’s speed and heart rate power a multimedia projection. In performances of 5-7 kms, I run to control a mutlimedia interface while lecturing about the impact of technology on the body. This piece laments the sedentary effects of our “screen culture” as it simultaneously enacts the possibility for more active and creative engagement with new media technology. The photo above was featured on the cover of my book Necromedia.
