Interactive Installation (2004)
Variable dimensions


transBody
 is a video installation created with remote bodies’ video images created by different internet users around the world. By using a webcam as prosthesis fastened to the belly, the bodies were gathered through a general public call inviting people to co-operate in the articulation of these hybrid bodies (i.e. “transBodies”) by sending their upper or lower halves of part of their body.

An online instructions manual was created (http://transbody.ubp.edu.ar) instructing the users how to shoot videos and how to send their body image via FTP. During the video installation the “transbodies” were randomly articulated together  joining the different bodies’ halves.
