Abstract:

  • Society has created the female robot in what we thought was the male ideal of pleasure and personal servicing. In response, the’Marionette constructed in Feu de Helene is an alternative to the robot cliche. de Helene is a story about a woman’s journey as she decomposes and recomposes herself through the use of a computer-controlled Marionette. The computer-controlled Marionette is used as a reflection into the very nature of the Performer. Out Of The Body Theater can be defined as a network of electronic devices that, through their interconnections, service each other in some defined manner.
