dataPurge is the first live exploration of PS122’s Virtual programming which investigates how we create live performance digitally, interactively and beyond the stage.
dataPurge is a live, virtual cleansing of one’s digital life. Clients will undergo data dialysis by monitoring the emotions associated with their online identities using body sensors and brain wave monitors during a live-streamed event. Online viewers can influence client outcomes through an interactive platform – a dataPurge version of group therapy. Upon completion, each client leaves with their soul awakened and ready to re-enter the digital world again with a clean slate.
Streaming LIVE from The University of Buffalo Institute for Arts and Emerging Technologies on Friday March 27. The full lineup is listed on Techne’s site. 31 Down’s dataPurge streams at dataPurge.me.
