OB-scene [A Troisi 2016]
OB-Scene represents an explicit artistic act of remediation where the female body becomes a cyber subject/object of embodiment of experience and resonates with an ecological sensibility. The sensuous enchantment with our everyday world (with nature but also with object and in particular technology) moves us to progressively change our actual practice of ethical behaviours. The logic of the era of immediacy allows only short term thinking, that do not help to extricate from the invisible network of databanks thoroughly confounded in such a way that the private is public and every secret is told.
The work aims to take ‘raw ingredients’ from a transparent biological media and to remediate them, in order to accomplish the desire to pass the limits of representation and to achieve authentic and ecologic emotional response from the viewer’s experience. “OB-Scene” does not aim to render transparent or to decode the real, but to free the real from the codes, that seem to enhance the modernist notion of (creative) powers, the male artist-genius and postmodernist concerns for politics of representation. The work is very part of a wider movement of women and technology (XenoFeminism) that is emerging and take inspiration from Jane Bennett’s Vibrant Matter where the anthropocentrism is substituted by the idea that human agency has some echoes in nonhuman nature an vice versa. I'm designer, performer and author of the software. Technology involved is self-made.

The Electroshop ensemble focuses on instrumental sound-based artworks comprising both mechanical and non-mechanical gesture (sounding sculptures). The position adopted in this research is that new musical interfaces demand new musical contexts, and vice-versa. The use of new interfaces reflects the aim of creating a unique work of art where fine arts, sound, programming, interaction paradigms between performers, composition and performance create an intermedial experience.
