Pleasure of Experience
Pleasure of Experience is a performative installation that includes the project website www.imaperformer.com as its central point. Whereas the installation itself is more of a studio than an actual installation, the piece can only come to life through the interactions of its spectators during exhibitions. The installation can be understood as a performance booth, where visitors are at liberty whether or not to comment on the input they're given by performing a response. Whenever data is uploaded the project website changes and is therefore constantly transforming when exhibited. The videos shown at www.imaperformer.com are all performances of visitors to the exhibition.
The installation presents itself as a closed room. In this privacy the spectator is greeted at the computer terminal by Boris and Brigitte. The two present themselves as tutors for Body-Art. The spectator gets to choose one of the tutors and is prepared for his performance experience step by step.
The source code of the application, the cron scripts and the Drupal module can be found on GitHub.
