Schneider (who recently left his post as a performer and designer at The Wooster Group) performs with an assurance and fluidity that belies the sophistication of the mechanics behind his performance: an army of micro-controllers operating minutely tuned lighting and sound cues, characterized by extreme precision.

Books: Performance, Technology, & Science

Performance, Technology, & Science Johannes Birringer Performance, Technology, & Science by Johannes Birringer explores convergences between performance and science through an investigation of new technologies that drive computer-mediated, interactive art. In tracing the evolution of digital performance within a particular history of engineering and theatre that now expands to a wide range of practices in design, dance, architecture, fashion, games, music, robotics, telematic performance, and ‘post-production’ theatre, the author focuses on interactive performance, installation and Internet art. Internationally known practitioners and their works are introduced to formulate provocative ideas on computation, complexity, emergence and self-organizing systems in contempora...
