The Wave Solo is a media performance that explores embodiment of avatar, or virtual representation of the physical body.
A warrior character is immersed within a subtle virtual environment constructed with two 9′ diameter pools of video – one containing dynamic imagery evocative of the sea, and the other representing the sky. The warrior encounters gods, goddesses, enigmas and archetypes – all of which are her avatars, or reflections, in virtual space.
Reflected, refracted, expanded, and transformed into virtual dimensions, she becomes a meta-body: an elusive, shape-shifting equation of light, intelligence, rupture, and complexity. This meta-body is both a somatic expression and a body of ideas, which are further expounded in The Wave Electronic Illuminated Hypertext..
