PRESS RELEASE


GEOMETRIC DANCES - GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM

Anderson's work brings together ancestral cultures and contemporary transhumanism. Her works include sculptures, paintings and drawings, all initiated by dance-performance, combining psycho-somatic organs (human body) and artificial organs (tools, technological objects, technical support). Anderson's approach presents a way of questioning the world facing the dazzling and complex computational development that affects the environment and the living world beyond these ingenuities. For Anderson, the ecological challenge is not to deny these transformational technologies (either in the service of human augmentation or threatening human societies) but to put into question the relationships between humans, environment and machines through dance-performance.
